For the past six months or so, Intel, in conjunction with record label KIDS, has been running an unsigned bands competition. The site, at www.intel.co.uk/studio, allows bands to upload their songs, and people to rate the music that bands have already uploaded.
The top bands each month have been be invited to play live in Camden at the (lovely but expensive for drinks) Proud Galleries. The winning band each month is entered into the final, which takes place at Proud Galleries on the 3rd December. The prize is a record deal with KIDS.
