The Third annual Battle of the Bands will take place Friday, April 19 at 8 p.m. in the Tilley Student Center.
According to the Student Activities website, band submissions will be accepted until April 8.
Voting for the best band will be held through Facebook, and there will also be ballot voting the night of the show. According to the Student Activities website if any bands are interested in auditioning, the act must consist of a minimum of three musicians and a vocalist. The band must be to play two original songs and two cover songs.
“My friends are auditioning, and their music is absolutely amazing,” freshman worship major Brooke Tweddell said. “They have been playing at all of the open-mic nights and they will definitely be hard competition.
Bands can email firstname.lastname@example.org. According to the Student Activities website, approved bands will be posted on the Facebook website and the Student Activities webpage for promotion and voting.
After the voting taking place April 8-15, the list will be narrowed down based on the votes cast through Facebook. The top six bands will perform live April 19.
“As a worship major, I get to see firsthand the musical talent this school holds, and I am sure the show will be phenomenal,” Tweddell said.
Kristin Clayton, a senior at Liberty, has been volunteering with Student Activities since she began attending.
“The previous years have been a huge success,” Clayton said. “We can always count on a great turn out, great talent and a night full of fun competition.”
During the competition the bands will be competing for more than 1,500 dollars in prizes. According to Stephanie Ward, Student Activities Promotions Manager, these types of events help foster the community within the student body.
