The Battle of the Bands is a showcase of live rock music which has become a key activity in the Go Down’s calendar of events.
The main objective of the ‘battle’ is to promote local rock bands and the culture of live music performance. Concerts in Nairobi typically use playback, lip synching in stage performances.
The Battle of the Bands celebrates instrumentalization, good musicianship and excellent live show performance. The ‘battle’ also aims at entertaining the rapidly growing fan base for local rock music, and creating awareness of the thriving, rapidly growing genre and often ignored Kenyan rock scene.
