There will be places at the festival for local unsigned acts, the winner will play the main stage this year!
The organisers of Butserfest (East Hampshire District Council) have once again teamed up with Live & Unsigned to offer places at the festival to local unsigned acts at Butserfest 2012 on Saturday 15 September.
Three bands chosen from the local Live & Unsigned heats will open the festival’s main stage and – for the first time – the national winner in the rock category will feature on the main stage.
Butserfest, an alcohol/drug-free festival that takes place at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Hampshire, is now in its sixth year and aims to feature the best local and national up-and-coming bands. Previous acts have included You Me At Six, The Blackout, The King Blues, Funeral For A Friend, Bury Tomorrow and Young Guns.
“It’s great to be working with Live and Unsigned once again. We pride ourselves in giving opportunities to unsigned acts and the national winner in the rock category will be a welcome addition to our lineup.”
Butserfest band organiser, Lucy Soal
The festival features two stages of music, as well as free activities. Previous years have included bungee runs, laser tag and inflatable table football.
