CALLING ALL YOUNG SOUTH DAKOTA YOUNG MUSICIANS!

The South Dakota Rock & Roll Music Association (SDRRMA) proudly presents the 4th annual Youth Battle of the Bands.  This is your chance to showcase your talent, compete for awesome prizes, and perform on a stage alongside some of South Dakota's rock and roll legends!

The 2024 Battle of the Bands will be held on Friday, October 18 at the Alliance in Sioux Falls. Finalist bands will be chosen based on musical talent, stage presence, and overall performance. Winners will receive cash prizes and the ultimate honor of performing at the 2024 South Dakota Rock & Rollers Hall of Fame induction. The event is open to the public, so come out and cheer on your favorite bands!

READY TO TAKE THE STAGE? HERE'S HOW TO REGISTER:

  • Who Can Apply: This competition is open to all musicians in 12th grade and younger who are part of a rock group outside of school. The majority of band members must be attending a South Dakota public, private, charter, virtual, or home school during the 2024/2025 school year.  Bands with members who are recent high school graduates or college-age may also apply, but priority will be given to bands whose members are primarily in 12th grade or younger.  The First-Place winning band from the previous SDRRMA Battle of the Bands is not eligible to enter, however, all other bands who either participated or entered but did not participate are eligible and invited to enter. See all rules here.
