Camden Crawl 2007 announces Indie Idle unsigned band competition

Camden Crawl 2007A CHANCE FOR UNSIGNED NEW BANDS TO WIN A PRESTIGIOUS SLOT AT THE CAMDEN CRAWL 2007 MUSIC FESTIVAL & A DAYS RECORDING AT THE MILOCO RECORDING STUDIOS

On the back of two sell out years, the Camden Crawl returns in 2007 with a new 2 day format. Thursday 19th and Friday 20th April will see Camden Town once again filled with the best cutting edge British and International music talents playing to over 12,000 fans across the two days.

As part of the daytime activities at this year’s event, The Camden Crawl will be organising their very own INDIE IDLE competition. The Camden Crawl are hoping the competition will unearth another star for the future who will be opening the 2008 Camden Crawl.

New unsigned bands are invited to send their demos where they will be reviewed by a panel of industry movers & shakers. The best 30 demos will be placed on the Camden Crawl website where the public will have their chance to listen to the demos and vote for their favourites. The 10 demos that receive the most public votes will go through to the semi final, held at The Camden Crawl itself.

The semi-final takes place at 1.00pm on Thursday April 19th at an official Camden Crawl venue. The 10 demos will be listened to and reviewed by a panel of music industry A&R execs in a public forum and the punters will be given the chance to vote for their favourite 3 acts to perform live at the final the following day.

The live final takes place at 1.00pm on Friday April 20th at an official Camden Crawl venue. The 3 finalists will have a chance to perform three songs live before the public vote for the eventual winner, whom will then later in the evening play a full thirty minute live show as part of The Camden Crawl itself.

The band will also win a day’s recording in London’s Miloco Recording Studios to help them put together a professional demo (www.miloco.co.uk).

Details of how to enter the competition can be found at www.gigwise.com/indieidle

Competition conditions: All demos must be received by Friday March 16th. Online voting for the 10 semi final places will run from Monday March 19th to April Friday 13th (unlucky for some). To take place in the live final, the band/artist must be available to play three tracks live in Camden on the afternoon on April Friday 20th. The ultimate winners must be available to play a full electric 30 minute set at The Camden Crawl itself on Friday night, April 20th 2007.
