Wanna play a festival?

Written by on 24th March 2019

How about this for a life changing opportunity? The University of Sunderland has teamed up with the amazing This Is Tommorow festival to give one lucky band or solo act the chance to open up the second stage on the first night of the festival!

The Uni is the main sponsor of the event and has been able to secure the amazing opportunity for a Uni band to play on this massive stage! As long as one of the members of the band is either a student, a member of staff, or a graduate then you’re good to go.

All you have to do is send a link of you, or your band to events@sunderland.ac.uk by midnight on April 7th. Then a panel of expert judges will cut that down to four finalist who will get the chance to play in a live final at CitySpace on May 1st. Tickets are free for this and if you come along you get to choose the winner!! (You can book them here)

The festival itself happens on the 24th, 25 and 26th of May with bands like Foals, The Pale White, The Vaccines and the Stereophonics all on the bill.

You’ll be able hear the finalists on Spark, as well as the final itself.

So get those videos in and who knows you could be playing on one of the regions biggest festival stages this May.

Good luck
