I Like Music is an official media partner for Nozstock The Hidden Valley!
With the UK festival calender bulging under the weight of new summer festivals like never before, we are thrilled to have I Like Music’s support. They recognise we’re one of the few original, independent, family run festivals. Their company wide policy? Respect music. Created for everyone who likes music, they listen to everything they get sent. Find out more about them here.
I Like Music Editor Kim is looking for an artist or band from the UK or Ireland to open our Orchard Stage on Sunday! Whatever genre of music you create, however you create it, if you want to play the festival (or know someone who would):
Tweet @kimhillyard your band name and a link to your best track online (on YouTube, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, etc) with the hashtag #playnozstock
Artists have until Friday 31st May 2013 to submit their music. We will announce the opening act on 14th June 2013
As well as a main stage festival slot, I Like Music will be running a full interview with the artist/band and producing a short film documenting their journey to Nozstock The Hidden Valley 2013. This is a special opportunity to not only play one of the UK’s original festivals, but to receive a wealth of support from their magazine.
• All entrants/band members must be from the UK and available on the 28th July 2013
• Nozstock will cover transport costs and provide refreshments on the day
• Your tweet for @kimhillyard should only include the hashtag #playnozstock, your artist/band name and a link to your best song
• Strictly one submission per artist/band – you will be disqualified if you repeatedly tweet using #playnozstock
All common DJing genres are welcome, e.g. drum & bass, house, hip-hop, dupstep, UK bass, etc. +++
You need to join Soundcloud and upload a mix to your own profile. Your mix needs to be approximately 20-30 minutes long. Title your entry: **DJ NAME** Nozstock DJ Mix. Tag your mix Nozstockdjcomp. Failure to do so may result in your mix being missed. Include the Nozstock logo, as the cover-art, which can be found here: http://bit.ly/NVy35B.
Once you have uploaded your mix, please send us your contact details via email to promotions[at]nozstock.com, with the subject line Nozstock DJ Competition – **DJ NAME**.
DOGS ON ACID will post a player for all entries on 2 May for listeners to like their favourites, or you can simply go to soundcloud.com/tags/nozstockdjcomp
Entrants will be judged on how many likes a mix has got, track selection, originality and technical ability. The winner will be picked from among the top favourited mixes.
Entrants must be over 18 and based in the UK. Entrants must be available on the 26th – 28th July 2013. Nozstock will pay reasonable travel expenses and provide refreshments on the day of the performance. Only one entry per person so make it your best one.
