Take the example of bands such as Evile who started off by gracing the Unsigned stage only to go on to sign a major recording deal, countless worldwide tours and gracing the Bloodstock main stage in 2012 and 2014. Add that to bands such as Bloodshot Dawn, Metaprism and many others who have used the Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses as a springboard to continued growth and industry recognition.
There are so many shining examples of British Metal bands with a great future – Could that be your band or a band from your venue?
Even if bands don’t win their respective finals the fact is the entire campaign and regional finals build bands profile, fan base and expertise in performance. But for those who are chosen – Quite simply the opportunity for a breakthrough act to play at Bloodstock in front of thousands and network with the industry is second to none.
Should a band manage to play in 2016 then they also stand the chance of playing Metaldays (Slovenia) and soon we will be announcing further competing festivals within Europe. In real terms Metaldays stand alongside Bloodstock as the major independent festivals and will again give the overall winning band a major in road to success in the bigger market.
At Bloodstock itself the bands will be given a 30-minute performance slot and offered the best backline and technical support at hand. Further to this we also offer the following…
30 minute performance slot on the ‘Hobgoblin Newblood Stage’.
Full access passes for all bands for the entire weekend.
Full media opportunity with bands having access to all festival media correspondence – interviews, reviews and photos a plenty plus the chance to network with industry representatives.
The chance to open the ‘Sophie Lancaster Stage’ the following year – playing on the opening night to a captive audience of thousands. This stage is the only stage open on the opening night!!!
The chance to play at Slovenia’s major metal fest Metaldays – quite possibly one of the most picturesque festivals on the circuit.
