The Stage is set

There is no doubt the stage is well and truly ready, however, we are still in search of some fine local musical talent for Gateways Festival’s Battle of Bands Competition 2022. So as Europe once famously said ‘It’s the final coundownnnn’ and with the days flying by, there is simply no time like the present to sign up for this chance to perform in front of thousands of people at Aireville Park in July.

Can you strike a melody like Taylor, find the words to melt our heart like Ed or simply let your new found groupies go crazy as your epic guitar solo goes viral? We all have our favourites and all remember that one moment from a festival when we just thought ‘how good is this?’ Well why not sign up and become that moment for someone else.

Applications will close on Monday 31st January and heats will commence in Keighley at The Exchange Arts and Music Centre from March. With that in mind, there is simply no time like the present to drop us a line faster than Tracy Chapman’s car (for all those 80’s fans) and make the first steps to superstar status. Just think of that interview with NME in a ten years time when you say this decision was the one that changed it all – First stop Aireville Park, Skipton, next stop a sold out world tour. In perspective with everything that’s happened over the last couple of years I would always say stranger things could happen and this might just be it.

Still sat there thinking ‘maybe, but they would say it’s amazing wouldn’t they’. Yes we would, but proof as they say is in the Yorkshire pudding. We have spoken to some of last year’s winners and in a series of articles to run up to the deadline (did I mention that it was Monday?), we will see what they thought of the festival and what they’ve been up to since. So keep an eye on here and all our social media and on here as they let you know how good it really was and why just sitting there isn’t going to be the reason you might play Wembley stadium, but getting in touch with the Gateways Festival team might be.

The only person stopping you from being that moment, being someone’s new favourite band or just being there for something truly amazing is YOU.
