Every year Stagebound gets an upcoming band up to play at Southbound and for 2015 it’s getting a makeover. Sunset Events wants you to help them decide which lucky artist gets the last spot on the bill – that’s right people, it’s er, people power!

Interested artists are invited to send in their applications from which a shortlist will be drawn up, X-Press Magazine, The Music and Pilerats will each pick one to promote for the month of November.

All three finalists will be showcased at a gig to be held in November then once your votes are tallied, the winner will be revealed. The overall winner of Stagebound will open the Big Top Stage on Saturday, January 3, at Southbound 2015.

Just by voting you go in the running to win a double Happy Camper pass to Southbound!

If you’d like your band to be considered as a finalist for Stagebound 2015, please email the following information:

  • Your Act/Band Name
  • SHORT Bio (under 250 words, as a word doc)
  • 1 x Promo Photo (1MB in size or thereabouts)
