IT was a tough call for the judges, but after sifting through the dozens of demos sent into DT Towers, they have picked their diamond dozen.
The panel of musicians and critics selected the 12 best entries to our Band of the Year competition who will now battle it out live on November 7 and 14.
We’ll be reavealing very shortly who those 12 bands are - as well as which semi-final they will be playing in.
But if you want to make sure you are there to see the cream of the county’s bands go head to head, tickets are now on sale.
As usual we’ve teamed up with partners Chesterfield Borough Council who are providing the prestigious Winding Wheel venue as the stage for the semi-finals and the grand final itself on November 21.
Tickets, priced at just £4, will be available on the door on the night.
But advance tickets are already on sale now from the Pomegranate Theatre or the Tourist Information Centre in Chesterfield.
