What festival is it?
Who were last year's winners?
so.....submissions are closed then?
Yes. They were closed two days before this was posted, apparently. :lol:
what was the point of posting this and why hold back on the details being requested?
What's a 'fiestival'? Is there now a Spanish-speaking population to rival the Quebecois? Do people take naps in between bands?
Hey guys!! ... The Festival "Ken" is talking about is 'Envol Et Macadam' in Quebec City Canada.
The winning belfast band, were in fact ourselves, DYNAMO (www.facebook.com/dynamoband)
The competition is PlanetRox. The link Daveitferris posted was for entry to planetrox UK and did close yesterday.
However we entered as Planetrox Ireland, which is where Ken is the rep for.
According to the official festival site http://www.envoletmacadam.com/en/planetrox/ireland/ registration remains open for Ireland submissions until today so you may still have time.
Despite the pretty vague information on here so far it is something worth being involved in.
We did, as stated, win 4 days in Canada Travel/accommodation expenses paid and played to around five thousand on the Saturday night at the main festival site and had an amazing time and met some amazing people and bands from around the world.
Try the line above or contact Ken, you'll also find a link to Envol and Planetrox Facebook pages from the DYNAMO page.
Be good to see someone else local over there this year and show them how its done!!
Good luck to anyone who has or intends to enter!! We loved it.
Fair play, Dynamo.
Ken, however, could brush up on his promotion skills :D
Cheers man. It was a fantastic experience, unfortunately literally on the flights home our bass player returned to Uni in Northampton and DYNAMO returned to our lengthy hiatus. But an incredible time was had.
And yes I agree. they could be a little better! :lol:
Especially as I'm sure there are a lot of bands who would love to have a go at what is genuinely a great opportunity.
