The MMG East Midlands Battle of the Bands returns to Grantham this year for two rounds of the competition.
The Atrium in High Street will host the first round 1 heat on April 18 and also a round 2 battle on May 23.
The 2013 event will take place across Grantham, Stamford, Derby, Newark, Coalville, Nottingham and Lincoln.
The prizes on offer for the event are designed to support new talent and accelerate the development of the artist. These include recording time, merchandise packages, tours, festival dates and a place on the MMG BOTB UK final held at Marshall amplifications HQ in 2014.
