Lakefest has launched an exciting competition for unsigned or upcoming bands to take part in an exciting competition which will give you the chance to perform on stage at Lakefest 2014 alongside the likes of Fun Lovin' Criminals, Snap! and Lee "Scratch" Perry. The competition, termed an "Online Battle of the Bands” invites artists to forward a video of them performing, which the event organisers will then upload to a dedicated YouTube page for members of the Great British public vote for. Likes on each video will be counted as votes. The four or five 'most liked' will go through to a live final where they will battle in front of three judges for a place at the festival. The band that wins the competition will be guaranteed a spot on stage at Lakefest 2014. Application is simple! Bands can either be recommended or put themselves forward by emailing Applications should include a video (preferably a link) that they want to be uploaded onto the YouTube channel; this is what the public will judge them on.
