Your chance to play at Strawberry Fields Festival 2012

SupaJam launch our Fast Track to Strawberry Fields Festival.. get involved !

If you had 100 acres of stunning rural parkland, a renowned strawberry farm in the heart of beautiful Leicestershire, and a bunch of like-minded friends, what would you do? CORRECT! Hold one of the countries, nay the world’s most enjoyable festivals... Strawberry Fields Festival started in 2010 and quickly won a place in the hearts of any lucky enough to attend. 2011 saw the expanded event headlined by Kelis, Mystery Jets, Rizzle Kicks, The Rifles, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and a whole host of other sonic supremos. The line up in 2012 is going to be just as impressive again, so impressive in fact that we at SupaJam wanted to get involved...

 So now, we’re proud to present our Fast Track to Strawberry Fields Festival! If you and your band want a chance to play at the 2012 event, taking place on 26th -28th August, then you’ve got from December 12th til March 6th to get busy. You can upload one or two tracks, your finest photos, a sparkling biography and even a snatch of video to our competition page. On March 6th the tracks will become visible to the public, who will commence feverishly voting for the music that rocks their world. On March 30th the voting stops. We then take the 18 most popular acts and stick em in a live arena, turn the amps up to 11 (or quiet the audience to an anticipatory hush if that’s more your bag) and let the bands battle it out in front of our crack music industry judges. The victorious band will be hoisted aloft, triumphant! (possibly not literally, unless they are very, very small) Come August they’ll be packed off to play the main stage at Strawberry Fields, with all the media attention and rampant adulation that entails. Sound good? Well get recording and get entering—HERE’S WHERE YOU START
