UON Band Comp

Ready to rock?

Who isn't?

We're looking for soloists, duos, trios and bigger to sign up for the UON Band Comp at the Bar on the Hill.



What's in it for my band?

It wouldn't be much of a comp without some smoking hot prizes:

  • Paid set at Autonomy Day - the biggest party on a UON student's calendar
  • $2000 recording package with Baraya Records
  • A paid, recorded and live streamed gig during lunchtime at Callaghan campus
  • All finalists guaranteed paid gigs around campus

How do I apply?

Follow these steps:

  1. Complete the UON DJ Band Comp entry form.
  2. Triple-check that at least one member of your band is a current UON student.
  3. Pay zero dollars (that's right - entries are free)

Easy-peasy lemon-squeezy!


When is it all happening?

Throw these in the calendar:

    • Heat 1 -  8th May
    • Heat 2 – 15th May
    • Heat 3 – 22nd May
    • Heat 4 – 29th May
    • Final – 5th June

All events will be held at the newly reopened Bar on the Hill.



What if I don't play in a band?

Rock up and rock out for free!

There are 5 nights of free live music waiting for you - brought to you by your fellow students.
