A new televised competition is currently in the works called Battle of the Bands. The first event will be held soon in the Dairghazbury Underground. BotB would like the EUBC to cover this competition under the Office of the Arts.
Each nation will send a single band to the contest. Broadcasting Companies will present their bands to the public over a week long period. During this period the broadcasting companies will notify the host of their band's set list in the order that the band wishes to perform in. After the entry period has closed, the competition will begin. The host will introduce each band and then the bands will play their first round song. After each act has performed the contest will pause for three days while nations vote for their favorite acts. When the show returns, half of the acts will the lowest scores will be eliminated from the competition. Nations whose bands get eliminates still get to vote in the later rounds, so it is best that the contest is aired continuously in these nations. The host then will ask each remaining band to perform their second act. The contest will once again stop while nations vote for their favorite acts. Once again when the show reconvenes, half of the acts will be eliminates. This process continues until only one band remains.
