Battle of the Bands

All Ages
Battle of the Bands is a night for local musicians, where they take our stage & present their talent in front of a live audience!

Battle of the Bands is an evening dedicated to local and regional musicians, aspiring and professionals alike, giving them the opportunity to take our stage and present their performance and songwriting talents to an audience comprised of people who truly appreciate great bands, original music and live performances.

The Battle of the Bands, is an event for musicians presenting all musical genres. Bands are typically comprised of 2-6 musicians. There are no age limitations, but all those taking MadLife’s stage should be skilled musicians. We encourage featured bands to perform original music, although that is not an absolute requirement.

MadLife typically features 5-7 bands for each Battle of the Bands event. Each band is provided 5 minutes to set up their gear and 15-20 minutes to perform their set, depending on the set time defined each night at MadLife. Bands are free to play as many songs as they like, as long as their set does not exceed the set time for the evening. The specific length of the set will be defined by MadLife the evening of the show, based upon how many Bands are performing that night.

After all participants have performed their sets, MadLife engineers will score the performances of each band based on audience applause. Audience applause levels will be measured by MadLife engineers utilizing a decibel (sound pressure level) meter. In addition, a panel of judges selected by MadLife will also rank the bands and award scores.

The audience scores and the MadLife judges’ scores will be added to determine the top 3 scoring bands for the night, and those bands will be deemed the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize winners for that bi-weekly round. Those top 3 bands will be invited to return to MadLife for our Battle of the Bands Final Competition. Bands not winning one of the top 3 positions in a bi-weekly competition may return to compete in future bi-weekly competitions.

Native to the metro-Atlanta area, the worldly Ansley Fain has quickly made a splash in Georgia’s music scene. In March of 2019 she released her debut single “Be Kind” which landed her a spot on an Aisle 5 (Little 5 Points) lineup the following September. Not long after, Fain made her way to Madlife Studios (Woodstock) as well as headlining at Smith’s Olde Bar in Atlanta. The show at Smith’s then lead to landing a performance at The Masquerade (Downtown) in January of 2020.

Currently this genre-neutral artist is in the recording process for one of her albums as well as continuing to write and collaborate with local and national artists. Keep your eyes and ears open for what is to come from Miss Ansley Fain.
