Battle of the Bands

Sep 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm MST

Battle of the Bands

Battle of the Bands (BotB) is back!  

BotB is a great opportunity for young musicians (ages 12-30) to have a chance to compete with other local musicians for great prizes (this year, first prize is a performance slot on the Wonderhorse main stage – other prizes to be announced soon). We welcome all young musicians to sign up—not just bands—including solo artists, instrumentalists, duos, and more! 

Previous winners of the Battle of the Bands have gone on to receive national recognition and gain positive momentum in their musical careers. Whatever your style, whatever you play, whatever your experience, we are looking for you! 

For the second year in a row, BotB is taking place in partnership with the Wonderhorse Emerging Arts and Music Festival. This year, BotB will happen just before the Wonderhorse Wondercrawl (so you can attend both great events!).  

This is a substance-free event. There will be a canteen on site to purchase snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.

Want to get involved?

We’re looking for youth musicians (ages 12-30) to perform at the event. We are able to provide financial support to youth musicians travelling from outside of Whitehorse if needed. We are also looking for an emceejudges, and volunteers to help us make BotB 2022 happen. Youth applicants (under 30 years of age) will be prioritized, but everyone is welcome to apply. Sign up on our website: https://www.yukonyouth.com/bands/
