Four acts from this year’s Live and Unsigned competition are set to play the Beverly Festival next weekend, earning the slots after impressing festival promoters at the Live and Unsigned Area Finals.
Set to play the festival are Milly Bolton, Leo, The Mirrortones and Daysleeper who have all been picked to play by the festival promoters after impressing during this year’s Live and Unsigned competition.
The folk festival takes place between Fri 15th & Sun 17th June 2012, in the shadow of the historic Beverley Minster in this beautiful East Riding market town. Now in its 29th Year the festival features acts such as Joe Brown, Steeleye Span and Chumbawamba. Many other events take place in the Leisure Complex such as the Festival Film Club as well as spoken word and poetry.
Beverley Festival is just one example of the many outstanding festival opportunities Live and Unsigned acts can achieve throughout the competition. The victor of the National Grand Final at The O2 in London will go on to play the Live and Unsigned Winners Festival Tour of 14 dates. Included in this year’s festival prizes are huge events like Beach Break Live, Relentless Energy Drink Boardmasters and Sundown Festival, as well as Independent grassroots festivals like London Summer Jam, Z-Fest, Brownstock, CockRock, Folk on the Water and Newcastle Green; and everything in between including Butserfest and Osfest.
With an ever expanding UK festival scene, the opportunities unsigned artists get to play big festivals is ever-diminishing, so Live and Unsigned has to be THE best chance to get a direct-line to the best UK festivals, blowing the doors wide open to playing in front of new audiences. Offering the money can’t buy opportunity to play alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Example and Chase and Status
