The Sunday Herald is running a competition in conjunction with The Wickerman, with the prize of the opening slot on the main Summerisle Stage at this year’s festival.

This will mean a Scottish-based band sharing the bill with Scissor Sisters,Texas, The Levellers, Newton Faulkner and The View.

The paper will publish a ‘Pick of the Week over the five weeks of the contest following the closing date for entries of 17th June. Then, the winners will be voted for by Herald readers, by text.
Bands will be judged on a one-song CD – submission details at the Herald website.
