Fast Track to Galtres winners announced...

We have winners for you. Yeah, plural.

Dreadfully sorry about the wait, however we think it's worth it.

You see, things have changed a little around here and we must apologise for that. We are not giving away a slot for one band at Yorkshire's Galtres Festival any more.

We're giving away slots for three.

After hearing the entries, James Houston (the festival director) had this to say:

Our programme is already jam-packed with some of the finest music our land has to offer. But when we discovered the pure quality of the finalists in the SupaJam competition to play at our festival, we couldn't stop at just the one winner. So we've found slots for three! We're dead excited. It's going to be amazing

Hooray! Thanks James Houston!

So, joining The Stranglers, Maximo Park, Reef and a load others will be...


These guys won the public vote by a long way. A wild classic Rock & Roll band in every sense imaginable (except numerous drummers dying in mysterious circumstances... we hope). They'll be tearing opening the Duke Stage (Main Stage) at 3:15pm on Friday 23rd August.

Truly Ford

Who could say no to a voice like this? The festival heard Truly Ford and had to make some space for her, you can catch her on the Acoustic stage at 6:30pm on Friday 23rd August. Be there.

Mitch Laddie Band

Some electric Blues that simply could not be ignored. Let it weave it's way through you as Mitch Laddie Band open the Duke Stage at 11:30 on Saturday 24th August.

If you didn't win then you weren't good enough. Joking. There were tons of entrants and picking was exceptionally hard. Please look out for more SupaJam "Fast Track To..." contests in the future.

If this festival sounds fun, there are still tickets available right here.
