MESSAGE FROM THE SELECTION COMMITTEE
Sorry but we can’t accept applications for paid gigs at the festival due to a huge backload of acts wishing to appear and the small number of venues.
Please do not send MP3s, JPGs, Electronic Promotional Kits and attachments of any kind – they block up our mail box and are not considered anyway.
There are opportunities to take part on an unpaid basis as follows:
