The Big Feastival launches “Live and Unsigned” band competition

Calling all unsigned bands! 

The search is on for one of the UK’s best unsigned bands to play The Big Feastival’s Main Stage!

The Big Feastival “Live and Unsigned” competition is a great opportunity for unsigned bands from the UK to enter and win a chance to showcase their material in front of 10,000 people alongside artists including Paloma Faith, Razorlight, Texas, Gaz Coombes and Guillemots.

Entering the competition is simple – all you need to do is create your Soundcloud account for your band (if you don’t have one already that is), click on the ‘submit’ button, upload your best track, then share the link far and wide to gain as many Soundcloud favourites and likes as you can. Get started here.

The top 10 tracks with the highest number of Soundcloud favourites on the closing date will be submitted to a judging panel including Alex James, Mercury UK President of Music Mike Smith (who signed Blur to EMI) and Jack FM presenters Caroline Verdon and Trevor Marshall from the Morning Glory breakfast show, with one band winning the fantastic prize of a Main Stage slot at this year’s Big Feastival.

The competition starts today, Friday 27th July and will close on Sunday 12th August 2012.

GOOD LUCK!
