Unsigned musicians from Coventry and Warwickshire are once again being given the chance to appear at one of the Midlands' biggest free festivals.

The Godiva Unsigned competition invites bands to submit their original music for a chance to play at the Godiva Festival in Coventry in June.

Following live heats and semi-finals, six finalists will play the festival on 29 June.

One overall winner will also open the main stage on 30 June.

Heats will take place at Kasbah, Rosie Malones, Taylor John's House, The Albany Club and S7ven in April and May.

Two winners from each venue will then go to the semi-finals held where judges will choose the six best acts.

The Godiva Festival runs from 29 June - 1 July.
