Flix In The Stix – Comp For Local Bands!
Optus Flix In The Stix is back! The international short film festival with live music and spoken word has returned with curator Nash Edgerton, who’s put together an impressive collection of short films that’ll have you laughing, crying, and feeling just about every emotion you can think of. This year, The Whitlams are getting in on the action and performing intimate sets at all dates on the festival and to top it off, the Flix In The Stix team have decided to open up a competition for local bands and artists to join the line-up and play in their home town. This is the opportunity all of you regional musos have been waiting for to showcase yours and and your band’s talents in a live setting.
To enter your band in the comp, simply head HERE and like the page to access the competition entry form. When you’re there, you’ll be able to upload a YouTube clip of the best you’ve got to show and select which town you’d like to play in. Easy! Once you’ve done that, you can use your hordes of screaming fangirls and your whopping social media presence to vote for your band to boost your chances of winning.
Videos are to be no longer than 5 minutes, entrants must have 30 minutes of live original material to perform and have proof of local residence. Each location will run for one week only. Winners will be announced the following Monday. Winners will open their local event for The Whitlams and receive 10x complimentary tickets so their friends and family can come along and see them!
