Today, The Isle Of Wight Festival announce the return of ‘Live and Unsigned’, a competition that will see some of the most exciting unsigned acts in the UK battle it out to perform on the festival’s legendary main stage alongside Queen + Adam Lambert, Stereophonics and Faithless.
To be in with a chance of joining this year’s line up, artists can apply online by submitting an original song of their choice through the festival’s website. A team of music industry
experts will whittle down the entries with the finalists performing at the Half Moon in London on March 29th. A live judging panel led by festival organiser, John Giddings, will decide the winner who will also receive the chance to record at the Skinny Mammoth studio on the Isle of Wight.
One would assume that the more mainstream rock end of the scale would have a better chance of winning than, say, Chainsaw Penis or Cancerous Womb. But, hey, have a shot anyway!
The Isle of Wight Festival 2016 takes place 9th-12th June.
