Battle of The Bands
Battle of The Bands (BoB) is a concert and contest bringing together the entire NYUAD music community to spend a night full of fun, and a lot of fantastic music performed by students, faculty, and staff. Last year Professor Matteo Marciano organized the first edition with over 300 people attending the event, and 10 amazing acts: bands, solo acts, trio, acapella groups performed in the contest. This year we continue this tradition-to-be! People don't need to be in a band to take part in the event, as long as they have got some music in in them and the desire to get on stage and share their talent. We encourage to write original music and showcase it! The winner of the BoB will have the chance to record a 4-song EP in our amazing Recording Studio.
