It’s almost spring so time again for the FemME Battles. The venues and the bands are known. So now it’s time to inform you about a lot of things.
And in the following articles I will tell you some more about the participating bands, Battle by Battle, so maybe it’s a bit easier for you to choose your winner.
This year we have four Battles. Each Battle has two winners. One chosen by jury and one chosen by the audience. So it’s important to come to the Battles and support your favorite band. The eight winners go to the finals. The finals have also two winners. Again one chosen by jury and one chosen by the audience. And those two winners go to the FemME Metal Event in October.
I’m curious which bands are going to be the successors of Mir Zur Feier and Sounds of September, the winners of the FemME battles 2018.
