One of the biggest music festivals in the Hudson Valley is set to return this summer, and the Pleasantville Music Festival is once again looking for new music acts.
The festival is bringing back its 'Battle of the Bands' contest in April. The deadline for submissions for the Battle of the Bands is April 13. The competitions will take place on April 23 and April 30. Three winners will be selected to perform at the festival on Saturday, July 9.
"One of the most important things we insist upon from our artists and bands is original music, music they created themselves," says Bruce Figler, Pleasantville Music Festival director. "This, by the way, is open to solo artists, duos, trios, full on bands, whatever you do, as long as it's original and you fit our qualifications."
While the entire festival is open to music acts of all ages, the Battle of the Bands is limited to musicians 25 years old and under.
