The Road to V Just Got Shorter
Competition finallists announced for an opening slot at V festival.
Previous winners of the competition include the phenomenal Young Knives, the now largely forgotten Keith and Bombay Bicycle Club and last year's winners Rosalita and The Brightlights. Now we are down to the final fourteen bands looking to emulate those who have won before by opening up this year's Main Stage twice in Staffordshire and Chelmsford.
The final fourteen acts in the competition are Imperial Leisure, Flashguns, Idle Lovers, Mama Shamone, The More Assured, Walk. Donít Walk. Matt Trakker, Blasterbra, Married To The Sea, Alexis Blue, The Rebs, Situationists, KC and The Shallow Call. They will now fight it out over 5 gigs at the Carling Academy in Liverpool on 7th & 8th May and at the Carling Academy Islington on 13th, 14th & 15th May. They'll have to impress a judging panel that includes former Libertine Carl Bar‚t, NME's Mark Beaumont and the V festival promoter Mags Revell.
