Let’s announce another SpaceFest 2017 band: Blind Butcher (CH) – with a big dose of space rock, glam, glitter, lycra and sequins as well as some physical culture. Time to dance, yeah!
Well, this is basically a competition for Polish bands that play sheogaze, space rock and all kinds of weird stuff. But if you are not Polish and you think your music fits our festival and your only dream is to play at SpaceFest! then try your luck and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (send us links to your bandcamp etc). Who knows – maybe we’ll fall in love with your music and we’ll invite you to come over – if not this year the maybe in 2018.
And if you have supernatural powers and can speak Polish, check the rules of the competition:
