Clark County Parks & Recreation along with XPOZ are all looking to give 3 local bands a chance to play live at the biggest sports & music festival in Las Vegas – The “Extreme Thing.” The Battle of the Fans contest has become very popular in the local music scene. Each year over 100+ bands enter to compete for the highly coveted prize of performing during the Extreme Thing. THREE lucky bands will open each main stage for some of the biggest bands in the business. This contest can be intense and requires 100% of your bands dedication and must remain “DRAMA” free!
