Waikato Times article from September 2002, detailing that year's competition

The Band Experiments was a band competition similar to the Battle of the Bands, organised and supported by Click Sound. Inaugural winners in 2000 were the Dead Pan Rangers. In its innaugural year, several bands changed their names for the Band Experiments to avoid being removed from the playlist of UFM, who at that time ran the annual Battle of the Bands. The last Band Experiments competition was held in 2002.

The 2008 Band Experiments will be organised by Mammoth and held around September/October at Flow.
