Some people will label this one the Battle of the giggles; we like to think of it as a the best way to launch into this years competition, with smiles on the dial and feet shuffling on the dancefloor! Battle 8 is celebration of the local talent in our city and the remarkable energy they can bring to a party. Skills and music aside, teams are publicly voted on the feel-good atmosphere they can create; this is a no-holds barred party competition that bought out the best from Melbourne’s party people! Eight of Melbourne’s finest and most accomplished DJ crews, teams, musicians and cliques battle it out over seven Sundays for the honour of being crowned the 4th Battle 8 Champion, and having their name engraved permamently on the specially crafted Battle 8 Trophy.
