Battle of the Bands presented by JBL


AmericanAirlines Arena’s outdoor venue, the Xfinity East Plaza, is a platform for up-and-coming local bands and performers. If you’ve recently attended a Miami HEAT game, then you know something exciting is always happening on stage.

Wanna be a part of the show? 
We’re hosting the first-ever “Battle of the Bands” presented by JBL.
Local musicians and bands will compete for a rare opportunity to play on the main court during halftime of a HEAT game in front of 19,600 fans—no pressure! The winning band will also take home a $5,000 cash prize courtesy of JBL, along with prizes, incentives and more. 
Even if you don’t win the battle, you could still score a future gig as part of our “JBL Battle of The Bands Series.”
