Each battle consists of approximately 8 bands, each playing for roughly 30 minutes.
The winner of each show advances to the finals. The winner of the finals receives a Tascam DP 32 Home Recording Porto-Studio and their choice of $500 in cash, 50 personalized band t-shirts, 2 months management, or a paid tour date. The band will also receive a headlining gig at DNA Lounge.
Judging is based on audience response/applause at the end of the show. The more people you bring, the better your chances of winning! Don't forget to tell your fans to stick around until the end of the show.
