2015 is the year of GOTH

We know rock and rules really don’t roll together. But bear with us, as we bash out the basics of the Battle of the Ad Bands. Then we can rage against the man. Promise.


Deadlines & cash money

A fee of $300 + GST per band applies. That's cheaper than one of those Friday outings at a restaurant that ends with ‘o’. Each band will get a few comp tickets for their groupies. Backline gear on the night provided (full list TBC). BYO leads, drumsticks, guitars, quenas, rainsticks and tambourines.



Bands must be from CAANZ member agencies, and only one band per agency can enter. Band members must all be genuine, bona-fide employees or current freelancers of your agency. That means no students, ex-freelancers, musos you meet on the job or ring-in types. We will be watching this year – cheaters will be disqualified. Due to popular demand, small agencies only (less than 20 employees) may band together. No super-agency super-groups please.


 This year, bands will perform three songs each - two covers and one original tune. This year’s theme is Goth. As far as thesongs go… that’s up to you. Choose 2 covers, and get writing your original. Unfortunately those old award annuals won’t help you. Oh, and you’ll have 15 minutes on stage to perform your magic. 


That’s it
