McGettigan’s launch huge “Battle of the Bands” competition

Think your four-man band have what it takes to rock the crowds of Dubai? You’d best be ready to fight for it.

McGettigan’s is hosting a massive city-wide Battle of the Bands competition, and whoever comes out on top will take home a AED10k cash prize and more. Get that guitar pick ready.

Bands must be made up of a maximum of four members to enter, and must bring all of their own equipment. You can apply right now by signing up here.

Bands must be available on Monday evenings throughout June and July to perform. Successful applicants will need to prepare a 20-minute set to be performed in front of crowds and a judging panel in McGettigan’s DWTC, which must include one original song.

There will be a minimum of four heats, along with a knock-out stage and, of course, the big final. Stay tuned for timings if you’re a fan who wants a night of pure rock 'n' roll.

Rock the crowds and win the competition? Your band will receive AED10k, along with the chance to record a fully edited single in the award-winning Soundstruck music studio based in Dubai.

That’s not all, as the winning band will get an eight-week paid residency at McGettigan's DWTC and a live performance at one of “Dubai's biggest gigs” taking place later in the year. We wonder what that could be.

In the words of the great AC/DC: “Are you ready?”
