The Guests, a four-piece Leeds-based indie band have recently reaped big rewards. The four students have been whittled down from thousands of entries to become one of the 14 finalists in this year's Road to V unsigned band competition. Noticeably the band are the region’s only finalist. The contest which has seen previous winners include The Young Knives and The Holloways, allows 2 winning bands to open up the main stage at the sold out V Festival this summer.

The band are now invited to play a gig at Liverpool Academy in May which will be filmed by Channel 4. Highlights and interviews from the gig will be shown in a special Road to V programme in June/July. Viewers will be asked to vote by SMS after seeing the programme to determine who will play the career changing gig at this year's V Festival.
