"Battle of the Bands"??

Our youth ministry is considering holding a "Battle of the Bands" type event for worship bands in the area as a fund raiser.  I have a few questions? Would you consider participating in this kind of event if one was held close to you? What things would the event have to offer to appeal to you as worship leaders/musicians? If you have participated or hosted events like this what were the pitfalls/obstacles you encountered? Thanks for any input,See More
