Would you like to perform on the main stage of Ely Folk Festival alongside some of the best British folk and roots acts around?
If so, be sure sign up for the Ely Folk Festival band competition which is being run in partnership with Ely Standard and launches on Monday, February 15.
Giving amateur folk and roots acts the chance to gain recognition on the festival circuit, last year’s competition winners Rusty Shackle were so popular they have been invited back to perform on the festival main stage this year.
Amateur solo, duo and group folk and roots acts are welcome to enter the competition.
To enter, please send a CD demo marked ‘EFF Band Competition’ with your contact details to:
Ely Folk Festival Band Competition
Archant Herts & Cambs
93 High Street
The closing date for receipt of entries is April 17. Please note that CDs will not be returned.
The winning entry will be announced by the end of May and will be awarded the opening performance of the 2016 festival on the main concert stage on Friday July 8.
