With the line up set and the performers ready for Battle of the Bands, the doors opened at promptly at 7pm.

Sri Lankan Society

The Sri Lankan Society were on first with a great opening to the show, playing mix of pop and rock hits.

Arab Society

Next on were the Arab Society who played a plethora of instruments in an upbeat set full of energy.

Pakistani Society

Following this, with a throw-back to some classic hits like ‘Californication’ and ‘Heartbreaker’, PakSoc proved to be a real crowd-pleaser.


FRINJE, a Sheffield based jazz band, proved to be very popular: offering an entirely different genre.

Indian Society

Last of the competing bands was the Indian Society and they didn’t disappoint with their set of classical harmonies with a Western twist.


Guest band Sobriquet closed the show with an energetic set which, after a few technical
difficulties, finished the set list on a high.

Congratulations to the winners PakSoc and the runners up Indian Society! The event was a great
success thanks to everyone that took part.

Battle of the Bands took place at the Foundry in Sheffield Students’ Union on Friday 24th November 2017.
