Battle of the Boroughs 2013

The 2013 Battle of the Boroughs is now closed to submissions. 

Got talent? The Greene Space is looking for the best undiscovered performers — bands and ensembles of all genres, instrumentalists, vocalists, DJs and spoken word artists — to take part in our fourth annual celebration of New York City's up-and-comers.

Here's a chance to be heard by some of the leading musicians and executives in the field: Geri Allen, pianist; John Schaefer, host of Soundcheck; Wes Jackson, Executive Director of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival; Christian McBride, bassist and composer; Nona Hendryx, singer, songwriter, and producer; Franco Iemmello, Capitol Records; Monique Martin of Summerstage; Chris Bannon of WNYC; Mike Rinzel of WQXR and more!

The winner of the final battle receives a featured concert in The Greene Space; a guest artist appearance at Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater; a live video webcast; a professional, multi-track recording session; a Tekserve package, including iPads; a professional photoshoot; and a produced music video.

Check out the official rules and guidelines for submission and watch past Battle performances here.   

You can get your tickets now to our traditionally sold-out Borough Concerts to enjoy an adventurous ride of new music and new talent in New York City!
