FOUR Isle of Wight bands have made it through to the next round of Live and Unsigned, Britain’s biggest original music competition.
La code 4, from Ryde, Blue Motion, from Cowes, NephiliM, from Sandown, and The Vecks, from Seaview, battled against hundreds of auditionees to secure a spot in the live shows, to be staged at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, on April 22.
All the acts in the competition are battling it out for the chance to play at Live Fest at The O2 in London. The winners will be crowned the UK’s best unsigned act.
