Online battle of the bands gives chance to perform on stage at Lakefest 2014
This year Lakefest is launching a brand new and exciting competition for unsigned or upcoming bands. Taking the form of an "Online Battle of the Bands", the competition will see favourite local artists take to YouTube to compete for a spot on stage at Lakefest 2014.
To apply, bands can be recommended or can put themselves forward by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. They should include a video (preferably a link) that they want to be uploaded onto the YouTube channel; this is what they will be judged on by the public.
The entry videos will be uploaded in the New Year so that voting can start. Likes on each video will be counted as votes. The four or five ‘most liked' will go through to a live final where they will battle for a place at the festival in front of a panel of three judges.
The band that wins the competition will be guaranteed a spot on stage at Lakefest 2014. Lakefest is a family-friendly Gloucestershire Festival and in 2013 featured acts such as Chas & Dave, The Levellers and Ocean Colour Scene. The 2014 line-up will be revealed in December.
Lakefest is an annual music and watersports festival held at Croft Farm Waterpark, near Tewkesbury. Lakefest is more than your typical festival, with an outstanding line up of bands and local talent, thrilling water sports, local catering, plenty of activities for children and great quality camping/glamping facilities. The festival is suitable for all ages, including families.
