The event, on Saturday, September 3, is to celebrate the anniversary of Lincolnshire Co-operative, and will offer a chance for stardom, performing in front of thousands.
There will be a contest to decide who will get one of the three coveted slots, and to be eligible for entry, at least one band member must live in or have been born in Lincolnshire or Newark.
Representatives from Lincolnshire Co-op, promoters Liz Hobbs Group and the Lincolnshire Echo will judge the competition. A final shortlist of ten will be placed onto a dedicated microsite and then it's down to the public to watch, listen and vote for their favourite.
There aren't many rules. The bands or artists must be free on September 3 to perform at the event. They can perform their own material, or covers – or both.
Their performances will be for around 20 minutes and all bands must be able to share the same backline.
To enter, all you need to do is send in a CD or DVD and biog of your band to 'Big Birthday Bash, c/o Liz Hobbs Group Ltd, 65 London Road, Newark NG24 1RZ. The closing date is Thursday, July 28.
