Who decides who goes through to the next round and ultimately wins the event? 

YOU DO! Every person who pays to get in before the first band finishes will be given a voting slip. After the last band has played, all the voting slips are to be handed into the bar team and the Duty Manager will count and announce the winner of the heat.  For audience members to be allowed to vote they must arrive before the first band (19:45). 


Who can attend? 

1. Normal bar entry policy applies; non-imperial students can attend as a guest of a current Imperial Student. 

2. All customers/guests will be required to pay the £2.00 entry fee.
