Budding pop and rock stars are being offered the opportunity to perform live on Lytham Festival’s dedicated online TV channel – LF:TV.
LF:TV launched last year and attracted guests ranging from Indie god and DJ Clint Boon and uber cool guitarist Jeff Wooton, to rock bands Reverend and The Makers and The Dunwells, Country stars The Shires, popstar Jake Quickenden, 70’s pop heroes Bay City Rollers and musical theatre stars Jodie Prenger and Collabro.
And this year Festival organisers are searching for talented musicians and singers from across the Fylde who believe they could be the LF:TV house-band who will entertain both studio guests and the viewing audience.
LF:TV will be broadcast live each night from Wednesday August 2 to Sunday August 6 to coincide with all the headline acts in the Main Proms Arena which means five lucky bands and singers will be selected to perform in the purpose-built TV studio each night.
Anyone interested in being the LF:TV house-band should post a video of their band performing on the Lytham Festival Facebook page by midnight on Wednesday July 25. Those selected to perform will be contacted by Monday July 31st.
In addition, open mic sessions are also being held on Monday July 31 at the LF:TV studio where any budding solo artists and comedians are encouraged to go along to pre-record a session which will also be broadcast at some point during the Lytham Festival week. The open mic sessions will be recorded between 2-8pm on Monday July 31.
Lytham Festival director Peter Taylor said: “We always try to do something that gives up-and-coming young talent the opportunity to gain an audience.
“This year we are offering this opportunity to a lot of people and in return they get to perform on our live LF:TV.
“It is a fantastic opportunity and we look forwarded to hearing and seeing some of the amazing local talent that we know is out there.”
