Battle of the Bands

Rock out to local garage bands from your neighborhood!

It’s back! Battle of the Bands returns to LACF.

For the third year in a row, high school and college bands go head-to-head for cash prizes and a coveted slot at Vans Warped Tour. Although all selected entries play at LACF, only eight of the 24 chosen bands are invited to the finals. Finalists rock out in front of an elite judging panel that includes Kevin Lyman, founder & CEO of Vans Warped Tour, Skip Paige, producer of the Coachella Arts & Music Festival and other music industry pros.
