Musicians will be fighting it out live in Chesterfield this year, as part of the MMG East Midlands battle of the bands competition.

Heats will be held in Chesterfield, as well as Coalville, Melton Mowbray, Grantham, Stamford, Lincoln, Mansfield, Newark, Nottingham and Derby from March until June.

The prizes on offer for the event are designed to support new talent and help bands to develop.

These include recording time, merchandise packages, tours, festival dates and a place on the MMG Marshall Showcase event.

A spokesman for the organisation said: “MMG has taken bands right through from their first show to London headline slots, festival performances and achieving their first record deal.

“We have gained valuable exposure for bands in a wide range of regions through radio, press and online.

“We pride ourselves knowing that the prizes we give really do make a difference and combined with our support we have enabled a number of bands to access different areas of the UK.”
