Gibson is once again sponsoring the third stage at Download Festival which will see new bands such as Slaves To Gravity, Big Linda, Dillinger Escape Plan and Mexicolas perform to a 2,000 capacity audience on the 13th, 14th and 15th June 2008 at Europe’s largest three-day heavy metal festival.
Olympus will be joining Gibson backstage giving bands the opportunity to roadtest the new Olympus LS-10 - an affordable, pocket-sized digital recorder that allows bands to lay down music anywhere, anytime, any place.
If you are an unsigned band you could win this incredible opportunity by going to www.myspace.com/gibsonolympus, uploading your best performance onto Youtube and posting a link on the dedicated MySpace page.
Your video will be judged by several respected music industry insiders such as Kerrang’s Katie Parsons, BBC Radio 1’s Dan Carter and industry A & R specialist Olivier Behzadi.
On top of opening on the Gibson Stage on Saturday 14th June, the winning band will be given VIP passes for the day, van hire with a tank of petrol, hotel accommodation and an Olympus LS-10. Closing date is Friday 6th June and winners will be notified on Monday 9th June.
