The brewers of the legendary ruby ale Hobgoblin are back to continue their partnership with Bloodstock Open Air Festival. A collaboration which sees both parties teaming up to bring METAL 2 THE MASSES at Bloodstock 2014, offering breaking bands the chance to perform on the ever increasingly popular Newblood Stage.
Alongside the tour which visits venues throughout the UK and abroad, Hobgoblin will be opening up a worldwide search via Wychwood.co.uk, inviting acts to submit their videos online from December 2013. This unique contest, where fans can vote for their favourite act, with the winner bagging the coveted slot on the Newblood stage, is open to bands from every corner of the globe and in exchange for your vote, you could also win the chance to take home a whole host of music-related prizes via the website.
The Video Upload will be open to all genres of rock metal, so if you're in a metal band of any genre - or frankly even genres that haven't even been created yet - then get on board and submit your video.
Last year’s winners Skreamer (UK) who tore the Newblood stage open this year said..
“Every band in the world wants their name alongside Bloodstock and this time it's our name ! Bloodstock, a name that is synonymous with so many great bands year in year out, known worldwide and a dream for all young, and old, bands to play, the main sponsors "Hobgoblin" not only make great beer, but demand quality in anything they are involved in, and boy have they picked a winner with Bloodstock. “
Whilst Metal 2 The Masses co-ordinator Simon Hall said ..
“Working alongside Hobgoblin is the perfect combination for me and the ability to mix my favourite two pastimes and thinly disguise it as a job, is something I'm sure I said would happen to my career advisor!”
