24 Local artists have made it through to the finals of the very first ‘ARTS BAR BATTLE’!

An event that will see local, grassroots artists share the stage, battling for the grand prize of £1,000. The events will take place across both Arts Bar venues on Hope Street and in the Baltic. Being different in atmosphere, shape and style, this means our winner will have to adapt to the space they are performing in and make their set work for the style of venue they are performing in. Events will start at 7pm and run until 10pm with each artist performing a 30 minute live set.

The platform will run in a tournament style, starting with Quarter finals, starting on the 4th October. The winner will see themselves go through the tournament, making it to the final on the 23rd November and taking home the cash prize.

From indie rock to hip-hop and everything in between, the ‘Arts Bar Battle’ will showcase the incredible depth and breadth of musical talent that Liverpool has to offer. 24 local acts will be carefully selected to bring a wide range of musical styles, ensuring there’s something for every music lover in the audience. Check out the list below to see who is featured in the upcoming quarter finals.
