Call for Emerging Washington Bands
Deadline: June 18th

ShoreLake Arts is pleased to announce that ShoreLake Battle of the Bands will be returning this summer! The call is now open for all emerging Washington bands to apply.

ShoreLake Battle of the Bands aims to support emerging and developing musicians in Washington State and encourage appreciation for the art of music in our community.

The 1st place winner will take home $1,500 and a one day of studio time at Robert Lang Studios right here in Shoreline. The 2nd place winner will take home $1,000 and a livestream performance at Annex Room Studio.

Each band accepted into the competition will receive a $300 honorarium after the event.

Winners will be decided by the judges. Plus, crowd enthusiasm and excitement is a factor in jury decisions.
