Chennai Live 104.8 FM is back with Season 4 of its Band Hunt, the Chennai FM radio station’s annual competition for upcoming, independent bands.


Band Hunt activities took off on July 29 and the first gig was held on August 9. The auditions will happen on August 30 in Chennai and September 8 in Bengaluru.


Over the last couple of years, Chennai Live has been promoting independent bands from across the country in an effort to recognize and promote new talent, notes a communique. The station also has a dedicated Indian bands section called the ‘Indian Music Hour’ along having an on-ground platform called the ‘Purple Fest’ and the annual talent hunt called “Band Hunt”.


Said COO Prem Kumar: “The response over the last couple of years has been tremendous and it’s so  amazing that we have such a huge talent pool waiting to be discovered which is exactly the intent behind events like ‘Band Hunt’. The bands discovered through band hunt have gone to become big names and are in the current list of top bands in the country.”


“We want to make Season 4 of Band Hunt a bigger success than its last three editions. Previously, we had bands from other cities come to Chennai just to participate in the Band Hunt. That motivated us to take it to Bengaluru starting last season which was met with a huge response. In fact, last year’s winning band “The News” was from Bengaluru. We hope to make it a multi-city ‘hunt’ soon.”


Chennai Live Band hunt is sponsored by Aloft Hotel and powered by Merit in association with Pasta Bar Veneto  & Prestige, the man store.
