Open the Small Town stage at Butserfest….Jul 09
Are you in an unsigned band and want to open up our second stage tent at Butserfest, with bands like Feed the Rhino, Shadows Chasing Ghosts, Heart in Hand and Polar?
Well you can! Here’s what you need to do.
1. Make us a short video (1-2 mins max) that shows us what your band is like. This could be live, behind the scenes, in a studio/bedroom writing or jamming, at a skate park, a band day out, interviewing each other or even at your local supermarket shopping. Anything at all in fact. It doesn’t have to be ’pro’ (be creative - use your phone, a DSLR, a gopro or a webcam even) but at least part of your video should include your music in some form, whether live or as soundtrack to the video, and a link to your Facebook/website.
It should also include some reference to Butserfest 2012, whether verbal or written. You can find a high res version of the logo in the Butserfest Facebook pics folder at www.facebook.com/butserfest
2. Upload your video to Youtube or Vimeo.
3. Like the Butserfest Facebook page and post your video on it!
The winner will be chosen from a panel of judges from Butserfest and Small Town Records. Fan interaction, Facebook likes/shares may well be taken into consideration so get your fans to like/share your video!
Please read the following section carefully, as there are some rules.
i) You must follow the instructions above to enter. Entries longer than 2 minutes will not be considered.
ii) Entries from all genres will be considered but please bare in mind that this is an alternative rock/metal/hardcore line up, so if you’re a jazz quintet it’s probably unlikely that you will be chosen.
iii) This competition is open to all ages although written parental permission must be given for anyone in the winning band who is under the age of 16 on the 15th September 2012.
iv) Any entries that include bad language or racist/overtly sexual content will not be considered.
v) The closing date is Friday 11th August 2012. The winner will be announced on our website/Facebook page on Monday 14th August 2012.
Get filming and have fun! We can’t wait to see your videos!
