Dorney Park Presents All New Battle of the Bands Competition

For the first time Dorney Park is hosting a new Battle of the Bands competition at the park, starting today, which could lead to a special performance at one of the nation's largest music festivals for the lucky winners.

The park has teamed up with ArtsQuest to create the interactive new experience, which will run for three weeks starting today.  Park guests will be able to enjoy the performances free of charge, with several different styles of music represented.  After each day's set of performances visitors will be able to vote for their favorite band on Dorney Park's Facebook page and official website.  The park is also encouraging guests to share the event using #dpbandbattle on social media.

Voting will be open each week from 9:30pm Friday to 11:59pm Monday, with winners announced on Wednesday.  The winner of each round will get a cash prize and be entered into the finals, set to take place on May 27th.

The band that is voted as the ultimate winner will get a one hour set during Musikfest, held in neighboring Bethlehem, one of the nation's largest annual music festivals.  How's that for exposure?

Battle of the Bands is just one of several new special events that the park will be offering in 2016.  Stay tuned for news on what else is planned!
