Please read this carefully!
Due to countless questions, here is our explanation/instructions regarding new forces @ MetalDays and Winter Days of Metal. Since the first MetalDays edition, we are supporting Metal community by adding a lot of new forces bands to our line up. This year, we will take our support even one step further, with creating another, 3rd stage on MetalDays, “New Forces” stage fully dedicated to you, new forces bands.
So…you are in a band and you are looking for a gig at MetalDays and Winter Days of Metal? …Here are the rules.
Since 2005, with each season, we were handling an average number of 1.000 new forces band applications for MetalDays festival from all around the world. We just started to wonder how many of those bands are supporting MetalDays family by joining us as visitors?
Therefore we decided in 2013, that only new forces bands, who attended MetalDays personally, will get a chance to rock our following season. At least one of your band members needs to say hello at the info point of the festival, in order to fill the application form and leave your CD. We do something for you - you show that you care about the festival... fair deal!
After that, we will listen all CD’s and will decide which 33 bands will play at next MetalDays edition based on quality of your songs and based on how much energy you invest in promoting your band.
This is not all…
each of the bands, chosen to play at MetalDays “New Forces Stage”, will get a chance to earn slot at MetalDays “Ian Fraser Lemmy Kilmister” stage, MetalDays “Bosko Bursac” stage and Winter Days of Metal in following season by selling tickets for MetalDays festival.
Based on a ticket sale you can win:
1. first 5 bands, that sell the highest amount of tickets (placed from places 1. -5.), will get instant slot on MetalDays “Ian Fraser Lemmy Kilmister” stage in following season.
2. second 5 bands selected by the highest ticket sale (placed from places 6.-10.), will get instant slot on MetalDays “Bosko Bursac stage” in following season.
3. third 5 bands, selected by the highest ticket sale (placed from places 11-15.) will get instant slot on Winter Days of Metal in following season.
We believe, that no other festival offers so much to new forces bands!
We are speaking here of playing two years in a row on one of the stages at two world-wide known Metal festivals! Beside that we are speaking about two years of great promotion for your band!
Of course selling tickets for MetalDays festival is not a must. It is your decision, but think about this…beside being able to win one of those three gigs that we mentioned, with selling tickets for MetalDays you are creating traffic on your web channels that will definitely boost promotion of your band.
We did our best…now it’s your turn!
Thanks for your support, and see you all in Tolmin!
Your MetalDays team
