Yorkshire bands have today been provided with yet another opportunity for playing at this year’s Carling Weekend: Leeds Festival. Following on from the recent announcement for the annual Futuresound competition and the route to the unsigned stage via Sandman / BBC Raw Talent (as per 2005), festival organisers have announced that stage sponsors Topman will also be selecting bands and artists from our region to appear.

So if you are a local band and wish to appear on the Topman Unsigned Stage at Bramham Park this summer then you need to submit your demo at the Topman Briggate store in Leeds from Monday (June 19th). The closing date is Friday, June 30th.
