Avon and Somerset Police are launching the third Live and Unsigned competition to look for musical talent from across the South West, and Weston is set to hold an audition heat.
The winners of the competition will be able to join the bill for the 2011 festival for a once-in-a-lifetime performance.
Weston will host an audition at Weston College on November 27 for the competition, which also features entrants from across Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bristol.
Acts who make it past the audition stage will be judged by music industry bosses and famous musicians, and will also spend a day’s workshop with them honing their skills.
Last year’s competition was won by Bristol duo Two In A Boat, who fought off the seven other finalists to join the likes of Muse, Gorillaz and Stevie Wonder on the bill.
Assistant Chief Constable John Long said: “We are very pleased to be running the competition again this year.
“I am delighted to be involved with the project and I am very much looking forward to it. I have been told I can expect to see and hear some wonderful new music and some very talented young bands.”
The closing date for applications is November 1, and application forms are available from www.craniumcaviar.com/liveandunsigned.com.
