Well, its time! After the 425 bands that applied back in September 2015, the final 100 bands and now the last 10 in the final. A massive 30,000 votes recorded over the competition… a new record and the heaviest competition we have ever had, its time to announce the winning band.
We are very proud to announce that London progressive metal band GABRIEL are this years TBFM Factor winners. Bass player Dan Mailer spoke to us live on the radio and was quite taken aback by the results and said it was all down to their awesome fans who stuck with them throughout the competition.
With the live TBFM Factor show planned for 10th September 2016 at Esquires in Bedford, we are all very excited to be bringing in most of the bands in the semi finals and the final. Tickets on sale soon!!!

A great competition with runners up Donkerkarnuffel, the clowncore band from London who bettered their 2014 attempt of 4th was a very proud moment for them too.
Thank you everyone for taking part in the biggest on air battle of the bands competition in the world. Its back next year and every year as we change to an annual event.
