The National Campus Band Comp is back

Newcastle Live -


The Australian Association of Campus Activities’ National Campus Band Comp (NCBC) gives local artists the chance to rock the stage at Bar on the Hill and be part of the largest live band competition in the southern hemisphere. This year, Newcastle Live is one of the major sponsors of the event. 

The NCBC has been running at Australian Universities and TAFE campuses across the country for 25 years. Each year, up to 400 bands from over 40 institutions compete live, aiming to be crowned national winners of this awesome competition. Previous winners and entrants have included: Eskimo Joe, The Vines, Jebediah, George, Grinspoon, Waikiki, Frenzal Rhomb, 78 Saab, Augie March and The Vasco Era. Just to name a few

The winner of this glorious gig will represent the Uni at the State Final, and if you’ve got the goods, go on to the National Final to compete for a $5,000 prize.
