 Eden Festival launch ‘Battle of the Bands’ for main stage set

Scotland’s largest community-driven festival is searching for the best youth band in Dumfries and Galloway.  The prizewinning band will get to perform live this summer on the main stage at Eden Festival between the 7-10th of June alongside free festival weekend passes.

The winning band’s school will win a £200 donation for the music department and a sponsored sports strip for your chosen school team.

Last years winners were the band, Back From Nowhere from Dalbeattie High School.

When asked what kind of bands the festival is looking for, Eden Festival Director Meredith Langley responded:

“We are interested in all music genres and styles, it can be your own material or you could be
a covers band. You just need to be 18 years old or under to apply. Good Luck!”

To enter Eden Festival’s Battle of the Bands, email [email protected] for an application pack. Registered bands will be invited to an audition and six acts will be invited to perform for a grand final in May in front of a live audience and a panel of esteemed judges, all to be revealed shortly. The winners will be decided on the night.

Scotland’s most eclectic festival

Eden Festival boasts a 2018 line-up featuring Groove Armada, joining Submotion Orchestra and Peep Show superstar DJ Super Hans at the Scottish festival, returning to Raehill Meadows in Dumfries and Galloway over the weekend of June 7th – 10th. Now in it’s 10th anniversary year, over 10,000 are expected to attend the event.

Scotland’s most eclectic festival will be celebrating its ten year anniversary in style with highlights from the last decade along with new additions to the Garden.

Hosting twelve different stages with over 300 performers, a long established favourite on the Scottish festival calendar, the 10 year anniversary promises to be a highlight of the summer with a celebration worthy of its national acclaim.

Tier three tickets are still available from the official website and under 5’s get in for free.

Director Meredith Langley Vine said “It’s going to be a really special one, we’re excited to be inviting back some of the best acts that have played over the last decade.”
