  • Competitors MUST CHECK IN BETWEEN 7-9pm on the day of the event to qualify to compete.
  • Competitors advancing all the way to the final battle will perform a total number of 4 times. There will be one qualifying round in which all competitors will perform once. Only the top 8 competitors will advance. This will be followed by three rounds of single-elimination, one-on-one, randomly paired battles.
  • For each battle, competitors are allowed 2:30 to perform, one after another. Human-operated video cameras will project your movements onto a video screen for all to see. A “30 seconds remaining” warning will be issued by the MC. Competitors will be faded out if they continue to play beyond their time limit.
  • A panel of judges will decide winners, based on: – Musicality – Virtuosity – Innovation – Showpersonship – Audience reaction
