You can 'play' the main stage

Appearing at Download would be a landmark for any fledgling band. This year, you can play the rock festival without leaving your bedroom.

For the first time ever an unknown band will get to 'play' the main stage at Download in a live broadcast from their bedroom. The virtual gig will be beamed to thousands of fans ahead of the performance from Marilyn Manson.

If you've got the talent and are building your fanbase then your upload could get you to appear at Download 2009.

Here's how to enter:

1. Upload your video to Don't worry about the quality, a mobile phone vid of you playing in your bedroom will do.

2. Get your fans to log on and watch and rate your video.

The most popular artists get selected for a live-streamed performance. On broadcast day, the Red Bull Bedroom Jam crew collect the musicians and selected mates and fans, and the winners rock out in front of the camera. Easy.

Videos will have to be uploaded by Friday 5 June. The winners will be informed on Monday 8 June.
