The Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands has become a highlight of the Victoria social scene since its inception in 2006. Having started as a relatively humble event in a tiny nightclub, the Battle now features six highly talented bands in front of a sellout crowd at the Di Vinci Centre. The judging panel is comprised primarily of Provincial and Superior Court Judges who are tasked with the daunting job of selecting the band which performed “Best Overall”. In addition, the Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands has a bonus feature – the Annual Mini Battle of the Bar Bands! Each year a different musical artist is selected, and the bands are asked to cover one of their songs. The same panel of judges picks the band which, in their esteemed opinion, performed the “Best Cover” of the featured artist.
The Victoria Battle of the Bar Bands takes place every April. If you want to be part of this amazing event, be sure to get your tickets early!
