DeLuna Fest has proudly announced its “Battle of the Bands” competition offering local and regional musicians a chance to join the official 2012 festival lineup with Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, and Zac Brown Band! DeLuna Fest performers also include Florence + The Machine, Band of Horses, Jimmy Cliff, Dwight Yoakam, Ben Folds Five, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Diplo, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and many more.

“The Gulf Coast communities are an integral part to what DeLuna Fest is all about,” says DeLuna Fest managing partner Scott Mitchell. “It’s the fans that champion DeLuna Fest and rally to show the rest of the world that the Gulf Coast knows how to throw the ultimate beach party. This is our way of including the fans and community in Pensacola's own world-class music festival lineup.”

Three regional media partners of DeLuna Fest, WKSM/99Rock (Fort Walton), TK101 (Pensacola/Mobile) and WZEW/ModMobilian (Mobile) will each host an individual contest where a selected winner will continue and compete in the final Live Battle.

The live battle finale will take place Friday, Aug. 31 at Seville Quarter in Pensacola. A winning band from each contest will go head to head by performing 2 songs each in front of a panel of notable judges including Gus Brandt, Booking Director of DeLuna Fest and Tour Manager for Foo Fighters; Mitchell, Managing partner of DeLuna Fest; and Joani Delezen, Music Editor for InWeekly. Get there early for a chance to win door prizes.
