Local bands offered chance to win support slot for Academy venue tour


Academy Events and Fireball are teaming up with Kerrang! to find local bands across the country to join the line-up for the Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour 2018.

You could be opening for Flogging Molly, The Bronx, Face To Face and Lost In Stereo as part of this tour when it comes to your hometown. Win the chance to perform to huge crowds at venues like the O2 Academy when the tour hits the road this December.

The Fireball: Fuelling The Tour, now in its third year, celebrates both established and breaking punk, ska, reggae and hardcore bands. With a party spirit at the heart of every night, you can expect to see confetti cannons, toilet-roll guns and plenty of Fireball across the tour, and you could be a part of it.

To enter, just fill out the form here.

Three bands from each city will then be chosen by Academy Events, and will compete in a live heat judged by Fireball, Kerrang! and music industry experts, to be crowned the overall winner and perform at their local Fuelling The Fire Tour date.

Here’s some words of encouragement from The Bronx’s Matt Caughthran:
