Strangecreek: Battle Of The Bands

Hello Friends – and especially musician friends! We’re happy to announce that the StrangeCreek BATTLE OF THE BANDS is back – in a more streamlined form compared to past years. We love this opportunity to find fresh sounds for our festivals, so if you’ve wanted to perform at StrangeCreek Campout 2024 (May 24-27 at Camp KeeWanee in Greenfield MA), here’s your chance.

Here’s how we’re doing it this time:

–        Email Derek@wormtown.com with the following – and please try to include everything to make sure you’re fully on board! IMPORTANT: Use subject line: “BATTLE BAND: [your band or performer name as you’d want it listed in the voting]”


(A) LINK(S) to a website and/or social media where we (and voters) can check out your music. If you do not include a link to check out your music, you will not be approved for voting. We’ll give a listen and if you seem like a potential fit for our event, you’ll be entered into our Facebook-based survey on the StrangeCreek 2024 ~Official~ event page [https://www.facebook.com/events/3313550332121742 ] where people can vote for their favorite contestants. Send your fans to the event page to vote their support!

(B) a GRAPHIC (small file size for social media, PLEASE) you’d like us to use for the voting;

VOTING will run through midnight on March 17. You can sign up to be included in the poll anytime until then (It may take a day or two to add new submissions after voting starts). Fans will vote via ‘reacts’ (Like, Love, etc – they all count!) to photos of each competing performer. Fans will be able to vote for more than one performer, but can only vote once for each performer.

– The SIX (6) performers who garner the most ‘votes’ will earn a chance to compete in the LIVE battle of the bands at HAWKS & REED in Greenfield on SATURDAY, APRIL 6. **So please make sure you’ll be available on 4/6! — and, of course, Memorial Day Weekend! **

–   A top winner will be announced at the end of the 4/6 Battle event, and will earn a CABIN SET at StrangeCreek Campout 2024! Please note: runners-up may be offered other opportunities to perform at the festival, so bring your best that night! The show will be FREE for fans (must be 21+), and we’ll be looking at crowd reaction and the ‘dance floor jury’ in making our final decision.

Let there be songs to fill the air! Best of luck, we can’t wait to hear you!

More updates, including our initial LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT, coming soon… so stay tuned – and keep warm out there! Longer days are on their way!
