Honda Battle of the Bands (Mercedes Benz Stadium)

Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase takes place every year and this year it will debut at the new Atlanta Mercedes Benz Stadium! Come join the Elliott Street team - who supports music 5 nights a week - for a pre or post event sandwich, salad, soup and drink and get ready for this high spirited day of music!

The Honda Battle of the Bands was created to celebrate, support and recognize the excellence of Black college marching bands and the unique academic experience offered by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Eight bands are chosen to advance to the Honda Battle of the Bands Invitational Showcase. The Invitational Showcase features musical performances from these eight HBCU marching bands. Honda annually awards approximately $200,000 in grants to participating marching bands during the program period.
