Band of the Year competition

Winning band will get three days studio time to create a fully mastered EP

Published on February 2nd 2011.

Band of the Year competition

The Printworks is hosting a ‘Band of the Year’ competition for unsigned acts in the North West.

The contest kicked off on Sunday 30 January and will continue on the last Sunday of the month until the final in November. Each month, five bands will have the chance to perform on stage in The Printworks Pump Yard in front of hundreds of passers by and a panel of talent bookers and other industry representatives.

Each month’s winner will be asked to return for the grand final in November as part of a huge weekend of live music with well-known acts performing alongside the finalists. In addition to this, all finalists will have a song featured on The Printworks website as their ‘soundtrack of the month’.

The eventual winners will be crowned ‘Band of the Year’ and win a showcase gig in one of The Printworks’ venues and three days studio time in Toast Recording studio to create a fully mastered single or EP.

If you’re in a band who are wanting to perform as part of the competition, email details of your band and a link to a MySpace or YouTube page to info@theprintworks.com
