1 GREAT FESTIVAL
HUGE SUCCESSES FOR THE FESTIVAL’S UNDER THE RADAR PROJECT
Last month we launched our ‘Under The Radar’ project, in association with the UKBlues Federation.
The team of judges, made up of industry professionals – including radio presenters, promoters and festival organisers – were seeking blues-based acts with originality (no ‘covers’ bands!), creativity, technical ability, musical compatibility to the festival, and entertainment value, being at the core of their choices.
The project proved to be hugely popular, with over 130 online applications being made during the 4 week application period.
The judges now have the difficult task of choosing two acts/bands to play this summer’s main stages.
As well as a slot at this summer’s festival, one of the successful applicants will be nominated to take part in the 2020 UKBlues Challenge, organised by the UKBlues Federation. The winner of the 2020 UKBlues Challenge will be invited to represent the UK at the 37th International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January 2021 and the 11th European Blues Challenge in Chorzow, Poland in April 2021.
Details of the successful artists will be announced in due course.
Thanks for bearing with us!
