New bands get chance to play Download

Red Bull Studios have launched a nationwide opportunity to offer unsigned bands the chance to take their career to the next level through a professional studio experience, expert mentoring and a slot on stage at the Download Festival, June 14-16th.

Bands are invited to upload a video to the project site where they will be voted for by the general public and judged by a panel of industry experts including Kerrang Radio presenter Katie P, Rock Sound magazine editor Ben Patashnik, Red Bull Records label manager Angie Somerside, plus Download Festival veterans Don Broco.

From the bands that enter, 100 will be shortlisted by public vote and put forward to the judges. 15 bands will then be chosen by the panel to head to Red Bull Studios in London for an all-encompassing professional studio experience. Of those, 8 bands will go through to play on the Red Bull Studios Live stage at Download Festival.

Bands have two weeks only, until 26th April to upload a profile to the website - RedBullStudios. Bands must be unsigned, aged between 16 – 25 and residents of the UK.

At 5pm on Friday 26th April the top 100 bands that have promoted themselves best, securing the most hype and votes will go through to the next round to be judged by the panel.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
