Christopher Howard-Williams and Didier Philippe, organisers of the annual La Roche Bluegrass Festival at La Roche-sur-Foron, Haute Savoie, France, are now inviting bands to play at this year's festival (3-7 August 2011).
La Roche 2011 features over thirty bands, including six headline acts from Europe and the USA. Ten bands will take part in the band contest, which will be run this year under the auspices of the EBMA. A further fifteen bands will perform without being part of the contest. All bands will have one hour on stage, including set-up time, sound check, and encore. The application form to play at the festival is the same for everyone.
Applications should be sent in by e-mail not later than 31 January 2011. Bands taking part in the contest will be decided during February 2011. The final programme lineup will be complete by mid March 2011.
Full information, together with the downloadable application form in two Word formats and PDF, is on the 2011 Festival web page.
