Forth Valley Blues Festival Heats

The month of February is almost upon us so that means the Blues Festival Heats are about to commence. This is where our local, up and coming acts get a shot playing on the big stage in March. Last year it was Radio Street Band and the Surreal Estate Agents who took out the coveted positions at the festival. This year, it might be you!

The heats will be staged every Sunday afternoon in February and Round 1 kicks off on 4th at the Forth Pub.

The second round will be held at the Iron Horse Bar n’ Grill in Prospect on the 11th of Feb and the third round shall be contested at the Republic Bar in North Hobart on the 18th Feb.

The two best acts from each round will be invited to the final play off which will be held in Forth on 25th March

Each round will be judged by a panel of suitably qualified musicians and their decision will be completely independent from festival.

So if you are a Blues/Roots muso and you think might have what it takes then we want to hear from you. You can book yourself a spot by contacting Ian McLean on 0407 949 815.
