Eruption BOTB - 2017-18 edition

4 posts in this topic

We're now taking bookings for this years edition of ERUPTION, our battle-of-the-bands type competition.

The first two heats (9th / 10th June) are both booked up already. You just have to all be 18+, and from the local area.

So, if you fancy getting a foot in the door at Krakatoa, playing a Friday or Saturday night gig on a four-band line-up, and being potentially just three gigs away from a fine wedge of $$$, then please send me a message.

In the 2016-2017 version, local indie rockers FAR overcame fellow finalists Full Fat, The Malpaso Gang, and Sonic Bucker, to win a slot at Enjoy Music Festival this summer, and a cool £2500 cash. It could've been you. :D

Interested? Send me a PM!

In collaboration with Captain Toms, we are thrilled to announce ERUPTION 2017, a battle of the bands competition open to all performers within Aberdeen City & Shire aged 18 and over. Last year we amassed a £2,500 cash prize for the winners. Sponsors for this year are currently being actively sought.

ERUPTION was launched in 2016 to stimulate interest in grassroots music within North East Scotland, and this will be its second running after a spectacular first year. Together with your help, we intend to showcase just how deep and diverse the local talent pool is.

 

Heats will be held on weekends throughout June, July, and August. The semi-finals will take place in January, with the Grand Final in February. 

Each show will take place from 8pm-11pm and consist of 4 bands, each playing a 30 minute set. Running-order will be determined by chance on the night of the show. Comprehensive backline will be provided to facilitate short intervals, but performers are welcome to take along their own amps, pedals, snares, etc, and drummers will be expected to use their own cymbals. All acts need to be in the venue by 6pm, to discuss technical set-ups with the engineer, and take part in a game of chance to allocate their stage slot.

 

Competing bands will be awarded a score. Depending on availability, bands are welcome to enter multiple times, in order to better their score. Scores are not cumulative. The 16 bands with the highest scores will be entered into the semi-finals, which will be decided by knockout, with one band from each semi-final progressing into the grand final. 

Judging will be by a panel. We’ll endeavour to ensure that these panels are as independent and objective as possible. 

Points out of 10 will be awarded for:

Material
Performance
Technical ability
Audience engagement
Professionalism

... to arrive at a potential maximum score of 50.

A door charge of £4 will be in effect for each heat. There will be no free admissions. This is a contest, so there will be no payment for performing, however Krakatoa will absorb all show costs.

 

Please email hen@krakatoa.bar if you’d like to enter, or alternatively contact 'Fudge Aberdeen' on Facebook.

Any sponsors seeking to come on board please email flash@krakatoa.bar

the prize fund has been bumped up to £1500 for the winning band, as the Evening Express have joined the party and are now sponsoring us, along with Captain Toms.

So, these are the dates for the 16 heats. The top scoring 16 bands will progress to the semi-finals.

As of right now, we still have these dates free - please message the bar if you'd like to participate!
