THERE’S less than one week left to enter the Alive Battle of the Bands competition and be in with a chance of supporting top pop acts Roll Deep and Gabriella Cilmi at Festival in the Park.

To qualify to enter bands need to have at least one member who lives in Kirklees.

More than 30 entries have already been received and the deadline is this Friday.

A shortlist of bands will be chosen for live heat gigs which are taking place on Monday July 12 at the Black Bull, Dewsbury and Tuesday July 13 at The Parish, Huddersfield.

Local music industry judges will then choose the winners who will go through to play at festival in Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury on Sunday July 18.

To enter email battleofthebands@alive.co.uk with a web link (MySpace etc...) to at least two of their recorded tracks (these must be originals) plus a biography and a minimum of two photographs of the band. Details of where the band members live should also be included. Do not send attachments.

Bands can also submit the information in hard format to ALIVE, Battle of the Bands, 80 New North Road, Huddersfield, HD1 5NE.
