An exciting new addition has been added to the widely popular TribeOne Initiations competition run by The TribeOne Dinokeng Festival. To be held in the historical City of Tshwane the weekend of August 26-28, 2014, a sister competition – THE BATTLE OF THE CITY – will take place in partnership with the City of Tshwane Youth Development Unit.

The way it will work:
TribeOne will host 3 sessions per day. 1: Bands; 2: Singers/Rappers and 3: DJ’s. Each of which will have a specific time slot allocated for registrations and Performances as indicated on the schedule below. This will apply to all venues until the road show is complete.
There has been 1 venue in each of the 7 districts of Tshwane selected to host the Battle of the City competition running from this weekend Sat 16th August for the next 4 consecutive weeks. Each entrant will have a 10 minute performance time. This acquate’s to 2 songs for bands and 1 sets per DJ. Artists need only perform once at their nearest venue.
Registrations and new applicants must perform at the venue which they applied at. Those who have not yet had the opportunity to apply can still do so on the day at their closest venue but must do so during the relevant registration time slots according to their type of performance (Band, Singer/Rapper or DJ) as indicated in the attached schedule.
