For the second year running we were proud to sponsor Okehampton’s Battle of the Bands which culminated in a Party in the Park on Saturday in Simmons Park, Okehampton.
Battle of the Bands is a long standing Okehampton annual event where over the course of a month, bands travel from far and wide to take part in a stage battle - with one band from each week being put through to the final competition at Party in the Park. The events are free to come along too which means it’s accessible for younger music fans , which always helps to create a good turn out along with families and friends who bring down chairs & picnic blankets - it’s definitely the largest gathering Simmons Park sees each year!
None of it can happen without the many hours given by volunteers to get the event off the ground, keep the crowds safe and most importantly booking the bands to come along! Many local businesses all chip in with donations, or staff to marshal and all the prizes are donated from businesses in the music industry.
The physidigi prize is worth £450 – a spotlight band page on our platform with track download and merchandise up to the value of £200 which triggers the content. Last year’s winners of the prize Pseudomorph had tshirts which triggered their track ‘Enemy’. This year’s winner of our prize is a young rock band from Tavistock – Ten Zero One. These guys are impressively tight which is not surprising given that they’ve been gigging together for 5 years but is massively impressive when you find out there only 17 ish.
We touched base to congratulate them yesterday, we didn’t have much time as they’re packing their bags, off to gig at Newquay’s Boardmasters this weekend but Max their vocalist told ‘its sounds brilliant and can’t wait to find out more about it’ . Likewise we can’t wait to work with them that’s when they’ve come down from being in a line up with the likes of Faithless, Bastille and Rudimental :-)
