WE have received the first entry in our competition to find a band or musician worthy of playing with The Wurzels at Pigstock festival.
In the related content box below you can find the latest music video entries.
Click on each link and if you like what you hear you can put vote for it below the video.
Are you in an ambitious band that’s hankering for a challenge? Know someone who makes music and want to score yourself some friend points? Then listen up.
SoundCHECK has a slot at a shiny new music festival in North Devon to give away.
The festival in question is PigStock, a one-day alternative summer fete taking place at The Pig On The Hill in Westward Ho! on Saturday, May 31.
Confirmed acts include Sam Dowden, The Cut Purse Rascals, The Skatatones and The Wurzels. (Okay, The Wurzels may not be to every music fan’s taste. But if Newton Faulkner, Gomez and Alabama 3 managed to share a stage with them – Glastonbury 2010, Avalon Stage – then you can too. It will add some colour to your musical CV.)
PigStock has already sold 360 of its 500 tickets so you will be playing to a sizable crowd.
But what else can you expect from this porcine musical event? Lots of cider, lots of local ales, gourmet burgers and a hopefully-not-eponymic hog roast – all amid stunning scenery.
Basically you’re looking at a one-day summer knees-up with bands, booze and food. And a bouncy castle. And probably lashings of ham-fisted pig puns from closet-comedians.
Keen to enter and win your spot on stage? The rules are simple. Fire up your nearest internet and email email@example.com with a link to a YouTube video of your band in action.
Each video received will be uploaded to a competition area on the North Devon Journal website where the music-loving public can vote on their favourite.
The video with the most votes wins a slot at PigStock. Simple. The voting deadline is May 15, the winner will be announced in soundCHECK on May 22.
Them’s the details. Time to go truffling in decision forest to find your finest video. The clock is ticking.
