About Battle of the Beats

Don't miss One Yard's epic Battle of the Beats, where precision and flavor will earn you bragging rights! Hosted by a top celebrity HBCU alum, along with a panel of notable entertainers and influencers, the clash will feature three rounds of intense competition between some of the best bands in the land.

Homecoming is a sacred tradition amongst historic colleges and universities that are unapologetically Black. No event more notable than the Big Game’s Halftime Show—where opposing bands and dancers give the same fiery competitiveness as the teams they represent. And Battle of the Beats keeps that same energy live and through your screen.

What does it take to be on top? Showmanship, for one. Skills, of course, number two. But to win this battle, bands will have to add that sauce to their routines that will be dripping Swagu. So, it’s battle time, as we celebrate HBCU band culture like never before and see whose punch is the tightest, whose stick game is on point, and, most importantly, who’s going to “Win House.”

Welcome to One Yard’s Battle of the Beats!
