Ernie Ball has put together a cool competition that gives unsigned
bands the chance to play America’s
greatest guitar music festival, Crossroads 2010, on 26 June.
The lucky winners of the contest will get a 30 minute set at
the festival, a round-trip airfare to Chicago (within the states only – so pan-Atlantic
fans will need to get to the US first, if they win), a hotel stay, endorsement from Ernie Ball and Music Man AND prizes from stateside equipment
mega-store Guitar Center.
In order to enter the competition just head to www.playcrossroads.com and upload one
to five MP3s, a bio and some photos of your guitar-ing faces. Then cross your
Other names making an appearance at the one-day festival
include Eric Clapton, BB King, Buddy Guy, The Allman Brothers Band, John Mayer
and Jeff Beck. So you’d better get practising those scales!
