After the success of the event in November 2013 the Battle of the Bands is back now – better than ever.

A panel of judges has been put together for the exciting event including local musicians and international musician icons and industry experts. The judging panel includes Mark Escueta, guitarist and vocalist of Rivermaya, one of the best selling artists in the Philippines. Dia Hassan, lead guitarist and vocalist of Juliana Down, is the first international act to come out of the region – and one of the Ahlan! Awards Dubai 2014 nominees. The band has opened for a number of international artists including Muse, Guns N' Roses and Maroon 5. Grant Collins, the Scottish musician, will also be on the judging panel.
