This year’s music contest, run by Bath Festivals with a panel of judges from the music industry, saw nearly 100 acts from all over the UK submit their entries. The ultimate prize will be to play the main stage of the Bath Festivals Finale Weekend on Bath Recreation Ground over the weekend August 7/8 – joining the bill that includes McFly, Scouting for Girls, UB40, Billy Ocean, Gabrielle, Fun Lovin’ Criminals and many more.

The judges have narrowed the entries down to a shortlist of just 20 acts and the two winners will play the main stage. One will then head to Real World Studios to work with Tim Oliver while the other winning act will work with Marc MacNab-Jack at Mizpah Studios to produce a single. This could be the chance of a lifetime for a solo artist or band to get the breakthrough they need.

Last year, what was supposed to be the third consecutive year of the Finale Weekend and the Bath Introduces competition was sadly disrupted, so this year Bath Festivals is making up for lost time, giving two runners-up the chance to perform on the city stage during the festival weekend.
