The Baghdaddies Festival favourites, The Baghdaddies, play Balkan gypsy with Middle Eastern lavours, shades of klezmer and tango, jazz and reggae plus a touch of ska - all laced with funky dance grooves and blistering eastern brass harmonies.

“The vibe of Toots & The Maytals with the passion of Eastern Europe creating the funkiest sound ever; the tent was popping, they were our true festival heroes.”

Auditions coming Auditions coming soon . . . soon . . .

Thousands of unsigned musicians have been eagerly awaiting its return, and now the wait is almost over - auditions across the country for Live and Unsigned are about to begin. It’s the UK’s biggest unsigned music competition for original artists and it’s open to all genres. So whether you’re into Pop, RnB, Punk, Indie, Alternative, Rock or Acoustic, Live and Unsigned has it all.

The competition searches for the UK’s best unsigned act and all entrants are auditioned live, which is what makes it so unique, there are no demos or recordings. Those who

make it through the audition stage will get to perform to industry judges, A&R and celebrity guests in some of the UK’s most prestigious venues and those who make it to the Grand Final will perform at the Live and Unsigned Festival at the 02 in London! Each year the competition prize pool gets bigger

and better as acts take to the stage and battle it out for equipment, festival slots, clothing, studio time and master classes. There’s over £100, 000 in prizes up for grabs this year including a world tour! Competing acts will have the chance to perform at Tour Music Fest in Rome’s Piper Club where artists like David Bowie, the Beatles and Pink Floyd have all performed. They’ll also have the chance to perform in Australia and America as well as competing in Asia’s biggest Rock festival, I Rock. Last years judges include Slade’s legendary front man Noddy Holder, Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Kerrang’s Alex Baker and RnB star Shola Ama. Judges confirmed for this year include Radio 1’s Tom Deacon, TV presenter Terry Christian and Nigel Clark from Brit pop band Dodgy.

Auditions begin in January 2011 www.liveandunsigned.uk.com
