Wanna be a RockStar?

Be the first confirmed act for Glastonbury Festival 2010 by living out your dreams of becoming a RockStar!

Fancy playing Glastonbury Festival, supporting Franz Ferdinand and The Ting Tings at the legendary Pilton Equinox Party and recording at Peter Gabriel's studios?

Those were just some of the prizes won by last year's winners of RockStar, an unsigned bands competition, Major Major.

Conor Clarke, Major Major's front man, said: "It's amazing to be the first band confirmed for Glastonbury next year.

"The RockStar gigs were immense and the competition has, put simply, changed our lives – there’s absolutely no question of that." 

The 2009 competition is open to all unsigned bands and performers, with the final taking place in Pilton's Working Man's club in August.

The winner will then be the first confirmed act for the 2010 Glastonbury Festival, will record at the Real World studios and again support the main acts at the Equinox Party.

A spokesperson for Real World studios said: "We are eager to hear and see some of the undiscovered rock talent the UK has to offer in 2009. We were thrilled to be so heavily involved in RockStar 08, the standard of the finalists was phenomenal, and this year? …Well, let’s just say we're all very excited!"

The competition is open to all, bands, solo artists, young and old, the only criteria is to be unsigned. Entries must be in before the closing date on 1st of March 2009.

To enter bands and artists must download and complete the entry form and send a clear recording, of no less than two tracks, of themselves / their band playing to:

RockStar 08, PO Box 4249, Glastonbury, Somerset, BA6 8UU.
