A competition is being launched giving local people the chance to perform on the main stage at this summer’s Splendour Festival.
The annual “Future Sound of Nottingham” competition is organised by a community project called NUSIC, which will see local bands battle it out in order to headline the main stage on Saturday 19th July.
Last year’s competition winners were The Gorgeous Chans, and other previous entrants have included Indiana, who now feature on BBC Radio 1.
Applications for the first round are now open, inviting local artists to enter. For more information click here.
Entries close on May 5th and the grand final will be on Sunday June 22nd in Rock City, where the public and an independent panel of judges will decide the winner.
