Currents live music: Battle of the Bands

Currents Battle of the Bands is a live music competition for young people living in Eurobodalla.

Local bands, DJs and solo artists compete and perform in the annual Currents concert during Youth Week in April. Up to nine finalists will perform and the winner will be decided on the night by a panel of judges.

In 2023 we also held a poster competition and used the winning design to promote the event.
