Battle of the Bands

For the first time in Supercars’ history, the streets of Townsville will host the winner of a brand-new Battle of the Bands competition in an action-packed Saturday Night Thrills concert.

The first-ever Supercars’ Battle of the Bands competition will offer a North Queensland band a once-in-a-lifetime prize pool and the opportunity to perform to thousands of fans before a performance by Aussie rock star and Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson.

The winners will also win the opportunity to sing the national anthem on the grid with that performance broadcast around the world and nationally on Fox Sports and the Seven Network.

They will also claim a hot lap, unique tour of pit lane, and will perform live on Triple M in the days leading into the event. There is also a first-place cash prize of $5000 for the winning band.

The second-place prize winner will also perform on the Saturday evening and win a cash prize of $2000.


To enter, bands from North Queensland simply need to upload a video of their best rendition of a well-known rock song to social media channels and use the hashtag #SupercarsThrills before June 25.

The best online performances will be named as finalists on June 26, and from there, fans will vote on for their favourite to claim the ultimate prize. Voting for the Battle of the Bands competition will open soon.
