Mercer students will have the chance to rock out and listen to talented artists on Nov. 10 on Cruz Plaza during Mercer’s annual Battle of the Bands.
Sophomore Kimberly Gessner, a committee member of Mercer Live, said in an email that Battle of the Bands will feature several artists on Mercer’s campus who will compete with each other to win a prize of $1000. The funds for the prize comes from Mercer Live’s yearly budget. Mercer Live is a committee on QuadWorks team that plans events such as Bearstock and Battle of the Bands.
Bands will play for the students, and then, they will be put to a vote by the students and a panel of judges. These judges are comprised of staff members at Mercer.
“There will be two parts to each band’s final score: the first from a panel of judges and the second from the audience’s vote. The band with the highest final score wins!,” Gessner said.
In case of rain, the event will be moved to Willingham Auditorium.
“Follow QuadWorks on social media to stay up to date with announcements about any location changes due to inclement weather,” Gessner said.

The event will start at 7 p.m. and take place on Cruz Plaza.
