Best American Band Contest

Take Your Band to the Next Stage

ENTER MAY 4-MAY 31

Think your band has what it takes? Then let JBL Professional help catapult you to the stratosphere.

Submit an original performance by your band between May 4th -31st, 2017.

In June our panel of legendary front of house engineers and musicians will decide the top 5 based on your performance and stage presence.



Then public voting will decide who will be JBL’s Best American Band and the winner will be announced in early July.

The Grand Prize winning band gets to take the stage at JBL FEST, in front of an audience of music industry leaders and fans from around the world.
