MU­SI­CIANS and co­me­di­ans who fancy per­form­ing on a main stage at a fes­ti­val can en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion for their mo­ment in the lime­light.

The or­gan­is­ers of an­nual Che­sham mu­sic and com­edy fes­ti­val BURYFields have launched their se­cond an­nual emerg­ing tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion, which this year will give three lo­cal acts the chance to com­pete for a slot on one of the main stages at this year’s fes­ti­val, tak­ing place at The Bury, in Church Street, on Fri­day June 17 and Satur­day June 18.

There will be a win­ner from each of the three cat­e­gories, one for fully plugged in acts, who if suc­cess­ful will per­form on the main stage, one for an acous­tic act who will go on to per­form on the Wood­land stage and one who will open the com­edy on the Wood­land stage.

To en­ter, acts will need to sup­ply a link to at least one orig­i­nal song or a link to a video of them­selves per­form­ing live, even if it is only a record­ing of them­selves in their bed­room.

En­trants must Tweet or post on Face­book their video/song by tag­ging @BURYfields and #BURYF ie lds Emerg­ingTa­lent.

They must then fol­low this up by email­ing their link, the name of their act, brief de­scrip­tion of genre, how many mem­bers and their ages and whether th they are a band, an a acous­tic act or co­me­dian to u uk.

A panel of judges will sh short­list their cho­sen acts who will then go on to per­form at Che­sham Foot­ball Club on Satur­day M March 26. Each act will be ju judged by a panel who, as well as look­ing for the ob­vi­ous, will also be lo look­ing for orig­i­nal­ity and c crowd re­ac­tion.

Last year’s in­au­gu­ral com­pe­ti­tion had two cat­e­gories, one for fully plugged-in acts, won by At­lantic Shore, who per­formed on the main stage, and the other was for an acous­tic act, won by then 10-year-old Ben Corby, who per­formed on the Wood­land Stage.
