Bandwidth: Virtual Battle of the Bands Competition is open to all amateur , unsigned bands who want take full advantage of new digital multimedia technology in sharing their music with the rest of the music community. Click on the Virtual Battle of the Bands tab to know more about the competition In the meantime….Let Your Ears Decide


Due to unfortunate spamming incidents, we will be stopping and nullifying the online blogspot poll in order to be fair to all the bands.

Instead, we'll be moving the online voting to Facebook!
So please visit the Philips Go Gear Facebook Account, where we've posted the band profiles in our notes, and please post a comment on the profile of the band that you like the most.

We'll be extending the voting to August 28, so you have one more week to choose your favorite band!

But please remember that the online voting component is just 20% of the criteria. The other 80% will be decided by our three mentors: Raimund Marasigan, Cooky Chua and Francis Reyes

May the best band win!!!

yah,, uu naiintindihan ko po na this is a virtual battle but ang problem, madami nag rereklamo sa voting.

Take into account that online voting is not limited to a national level. Some bands have relatives and friends abroad supporting them and thusfar boosting their online votes :)

I know a band that is backed up and with full support from their hometown like batangas and laguna..yeah represent!

I still suggest na paglabanin na lng yung 20 bands para maging fiar sa lahat ng bands kasi lahat naman magagaling,, ;)

The reason why we included an online voting component is because we want to give a voice also to the fans of the bands. But remember, it is still a talent competition, that's why 80% of the criteria will be decided by the judges. It is a virtual competition, so only the Top 5 bands will be able to perform live. But we will take into consideration all of your suggestions for next year's competition. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions

if that is the case, then why move to facebook? when most already use friendster or myspace or any other profile page? You would also have to consider those who exerted the extra effort to vote. Encouraged others to vote and referred the site to them. If the tope 5 will be those priviledged to perform, then the polls only show numbers. When it comes to Showtime all will be lvl regardless of the number of poll votes they received.

Sure we all have rants and raves for the online poll, but in the end all that matters is the top 5 who will be performing.

and just a message to those who rant. If u can't take the competition, don't join at all. Simple as that. Show good sportsmanship, instead of complaining exert some effort in supoporting your favorite band! Because there are some who actually LIKE healthy competition.

When they say VIRTUAL competition. VIRTUAL says it all.

intriguing... i go and check to find out myself. why is halmista in your info-pages?? care to defend & explain? a friend prior to the competition? forgot to remove? you should have spend a minute to remove them just to make it fair & clean even through the eyes of the beholder hehehe

those bands reaching 1000 votes on the 1st voting day.. 3000 to 6000 on succeeding days and those bands who can accumulate 1k+ votes in 5 hrs. where are they now? look at your votes. hehehe

"intriguing... i go and check to find out myself. why is halmista in your info-pages?? care to defend & explain? "

Ok..ako nalang mag eexplain because it's a too simple issue na dapat di palakihin. Explaination po kac dahil ang "Halmista" Facebook account po is a Fan Profile (if you're aware of friendster, meron din silang feature n2") and we added Philips' Facebook profile with halmista, so automatically ma fea-feature po kami sa kanilang information page...uhm try nyo mag add ng accounts with the "be a fan" or "add as a fan" feature sa facebook and see it yourself.. sorry po kung na misinterpret nyo un pero sana don't be quick to jump into conclusion agad..sorry pero as far as i'm concern sa inyo na yang competition na yan..all we need is exposure..and we don't give a damn to the prizes of this event..
