Rajiv and The Ends win our first Battle Stage

Romford R&B artist RAJIV and Canvey Island rock band THE ENDS were the two winners of Phoenix FM’s Battle Stage competition last night.

The two acts made it through to the final with London rock bands BELTER and EL DEYMA after three heats and a lengthy selection process after more than 50 bands entered our first “battle of the bands” style competition.

Rajiv will now play the Main Stage of the Brentwood Festival on Sunday 7th July, just before the Loveable Rogues take to the stage. The organisers of the Brentwood Festival have found room for one more act and The Ends will be the first band up on the Main Stage on Saturday afternoon.

If you missed the free showcase at the Brentwood Centre, tickets can still be purchased from brentwoodfestival.co.uk.

See what you think of the bands! Here are some videos from the acts at the final:
