11th Annual Teen Battle of the Bands

In the 11th year of the Teen Battle of the Bands competition, the Jacksonville Public Library is taking it to the next level. This year’s competition will feature the same live show in Hemming Park, but if you want to play in the big league, you have to please the fans first. Not only do the contestants have to battle it out on the live stage, they have to first be chosen through an online voting process by fans. Bands will submit a video of their band playing via YouTube, then the videos will go up on the I Love JPL blog for fans to vote for their favorite.
