So we are finally down to the last part of the competition, the knock out stages. Its been a couple of months coming and what a fantastic response.
For the third time in succession we have had more bands register than ever. A total of 387 bands have applied to take part in TBFM Factor 2014 from an amazing 23 countries. Bands from England, USA, Australia, Northern Ireland, Belgium, Argentina, France, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, India, Maldives, Italy, Israel, Norway, Indonesia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Greece, Ukraine, Canada have all joined us for what is set to be the biggest on air battle of the bands ever.
Over the past week, we at TBFM have had to try and shorten the list of quality rock, punk and metal bands down from 387 to just 100 bands, all of whom will be through to the knock out rounds starting 5th January 2014. On Thursday 26th December at 5pm UK time, we will be announcing the 100 bands and which heat they will be competing in. This will give all the bands an indication of the other 9 bands they will be up against in their heat.
Just a reminder, the top prize is a one album record deal with American label Ripple Music. There are a whole host of other prizes to be won and not all for the overall winner. All bands that make it to the grand final in May have a chance of winning prizes. We look forward to what the next 6 months brings and cannot wait to crown one of the bands ‘TBFM FACTOR WINNERS 2014’.
Good luck to each and every band.
