FIREFEST seek unsigned UK melodic rock / AOR band to open the festival. Do you have what it takes?!

 

As the last Firefest beckons, we have looked back over the years with a huge sense of pride and achievement. We were wondering what we could do just to make that last Firefest a little bit special considering we had to sadly refuse a LOT of bands the opportunity to play the show due to the fact that we simply could not fit everybody in. During a discussion with some of the bands, we were remembering the “good old days” – touring the toilets of the world and of course the good old “buy on” – basically where bands pay to be part of a particular tour – just to get the opportunity to play in front of a decent crowd, a practice that Firefest has never agreed with.

 

Bearing that in mind, Firefest is going to make the dream come true for ONE UNSIGNED UK melodic hard rock/AOR band by offering them the chance to OPEN the FIREFEST 2014 show. This is our way of helping out the up and coming bands that are struggling to get out there and play live in front of a dedicated audience. The criteria?

 

1.       The band must be un signed to any record company

 

2.       The band must be available to play on October 24th 2014

 

3.       Musically the band MUST fit the melodic hard rock/AOR format of Firefest

 

4.       The band must be UK based

 

So how does it work?We want you to send us your EPKs or demos, including a full band biography, before Thursday November 14th. The Firefest team will listen to everything we receive and we will select 6 bands to be considered.

 

Having selected the final 6 bands, each band will be featured on the Steve Price Rock Show on www.arfm.co.uk  broadcasting on Saturday and Sunday evenings from 6pm to 9pm GMT.

 

The first three bands will be featured on Saturday November 16th and the second three bands will be featured on Sunday November 17th

 

This will be a public vote – bands of course are free to garner as much support as they can – details of how and where to vote will follow shortly – please check on www.firefestofficial.com and Firefest Official Group on Facebook for the details.

 

Once all 6 bands have been featured, the top three bands with the most votes will go forward to the final vote .The remaining three bands will be featured on the Steve Price rock show on Saturday November 23rd and bands can once again garner all the support they wish – but final voting closes on Monday November 25th – after which the band with the most votes will open the FIREFEST 2014 show in front of, hopefully, a full house at Rock City.

 

We would encourage EVERYONE to vote, especially Firefest patrons, as essentially the winner will be playing in front of YOU. We hope this opportunity to open the FINAL FIREFEST will help an unsigned band to establish a foothold, however small, in the live arena and most of all an opportunity to rock  in front of a dedicated melodic hard rock audience.

 

Please submit all Electronic Press Kits/mp3s to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   with “UNSIGNED” CLEARLY MARKED IN THE HEADING – otherwise it will not be read.

 

Good luck to all the unsigned bands out there, we look forward to welcoming one of you to FIREFEST 2104 as an artist.
