BeachLife is hosting a Toy Drive for St. Jude, that is ALSO a Battle of the Bands! Kids bands can compete for a slot to play at this year’s BeachLife Festival in May! Bands can post a video of their band playing a song to social media and tag BeachLife Festival. From all the submissions, our panel of judges will review the entries and select 3-5 finalists, who will then play at our Final Battle Event on December 15 from 6pm-8pm in Redondo Beach!
Everyone is welcome to come join the Final Battle Event at Rock N Brews Redondo Beach, and admission to the event is one new, unwrapped toy that will be donated to our friends at St. Jude in collaboration with our Toy Drive!
