Ready to host a Battle?


We'd love to add you to our annual state-wide event! This year we will host six regional competitions and end with state finals at the state fair in Springfield. Although the group organizing this event is made up of Park & Recreation supervisors throughout the state, any other government, non-profit agencies, local festivals/events, or other groups are welcome to participate as long as their event meets our guidelines and take place in the state of Illinois.

Benefits of partnering with us include:
  • The opportunity to offer your winning band a chance to advance to the State Finals is a great prize!
  • You'll be provided with all of the forms, rules, and guidelines to get you started!
  • It's free!

In order to keep this event going on such a high level, please take the time to read through our requirements for host sites. If you agree to follow each of the requirements and would like to be part of our event, please fill out the application below.
