The public have cast their votes and the five acts who will go through the live final of the Firestone Battle of the Bands 2018 are modernlove., Exiles, Sonnets & Sisters, Oski Bravo, and JaXson! The final will take place in Odd Mollies, Drogheda, on 26th April when the bands will perform for a judging panel comprising Today FM producer and DJ Ed Smith, Today FM Head of Sound Gavin Blake, and representatives from both Vantastival and Firestone, with the public also having a vote. The overall winner will receive a prize package including a 2 track recording session at Herbert Place Studios and €1,800 worth of equipment from the Musicmaker store in Dublin, and will headline the Firestone Music Station stage at this year’s Vantastival!
The final is open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Entry is €4 and all who pay in will be able to vote for their favourite band on the night and will also be entered into a draw for a pair of weekend Vantastival tickets.
Thanks to all 12 acts who took part in the online phase of the competition and we’re looking forward to seeing all 12 perform on the Firestone Stage at this year’s Vantastival!
