Fireball 2019: Here’s how local Sheffield bands could win a spot

Legendary ska punk band Save Ferris have been announced as the special guests on this year’s Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour! Save Ferris will join ska-punk legends Less Than Jake and Goldfinger (co-headliners), and the winners of last year’s Fireball Hottest Band competition, Thieves Of Liberty. And this is how a local Sheffield band could join the line-up!

Previous winners Fireball’s Hottest Band competition include Sheffield’s own Sweet Little Machine and Lost In Stereo. Your band could soon be performing to huge crowds at iconic venues as you open for Less Than Jake, Goldfinger and Save Ferris as part of this mammoth tour when it hits the road this September. To enter, just fill out the form here and tell us why you’re the perfect band to open for this amazing line-up.

“Something that has always been very important to Fireball is supporting the up and coming. There’s so many excellent grassroots bands that never get the chance to be heard, which is why we started the Hottest Band competition right from the very first Fuelling the Fire Tour. It’s also a great excuse for us to sit down and listen to some of the UK’s finest new music that’s not quite on the radar just yet.”- Matt Reynolds, Fireball Brand UK Embassador.

Competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 31 July 2019. One entry per band, entrants must be 18+ on date of performance and at least two members of the band must be based within 30 miles of the venue they are applying for. Winners will be notified by Friday 9 August 2019 and announced on Monday 12 August 2019.
