To make up for a year without festivals, this year Bath Introduces will pick two winners who will both play live at The Bath Festival Finale Weekend, sharing the main stage with a lineup that includes Billy Ocean, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, McFly and many more.

To enter, simply send in your best live performance video by the deadline of Thursday 1st July.

Previously, Bath Festivals has had more than 130 applications.

The competition is open to any genre and any age, so long as you’re over 18.

Applicants will go through two rounds of judging before the finalists are announced on Monday 19th July.

A shortlist of 20 acts will be asked to submit a second application, before two winners are picked to open each day of the finale weekend on the main stage.

One winner will be picked by Marc of Mizpah Studios and will receive two days of recording time working with him at his studio in the heart of Bath.

Runner ups will also be offered a chance to perform on the city stage during the festival.

As long as you’re unsigned and available to play The Bath Festival Finale Weekend on 7th and 8th August, you are eligible to apply.

Applications are open now via this link.
