For the first time in its 14-year history, the Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase will be video streamed from the Georgia Dome on Saturday January 30 at 3:00pm ET. The event will be streamed live on Campusinsiders.com, the Campus Insiders mobile app, on the go90 app and on Campus Insiders' connected TV platforms such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku and Xbox.
The exclusive live stream of the Honda Battle of the Bands event is part of a Campus Insiders content partnership with Urban Sports & Entertainment Group (USEG) to produce and distribute live college sports and entertainment events. The partnership was first announced in September, 2015.
This year's Showcase will feature bands from Alabama A&M, Alcorn State, Bethune Cookman, Jackson State, Lincoln (Pa), Prairie View A&M, South Carolina State and Tennessee State.
The eight bands were selected through a process that included online fan voting, as well as feedback from band directors, HBCU presidents and American Honda representatives.
In addition to a $20,000 grant from Honda to support their music education programs, each participating HBCU will receive travel and accommodations to the Invitational Showcase in Atlanta.
