HOW IT WORKS
HERE'S HOW GUINNESS ARTHUR'S DAY PLAY ON THE DAY WORKS
We are now open for entries. It doesn't matter what your musical style is or in which genre you operate: this competition is open to all contenders. We are looking for what, in the opinion of the panel of distinguished judges and the public, is the band or solo act who has that extra special something – and that will benefit most from the brilliant platform offered by this competition. With the support of Guinness, RTÉ 2fm and Hot Press, this could be your ticket to stardom...
Entries are designated by region.
You can submit your track from August 15th 2012. To be eligible, an act must perform in a pub on Arthur's Day, Thursday, September 27th 2012. This is your chance to mix it with some of the biggest international stars on Arthur's Day and in the process win the coveted title of Play On The Day competition winners.
Entries must be validated by 8pm on Friday, October 5th 2012.
You can validate your entry by submitting details of your Arthur's Day performance on www.playontheday.com. There are hundreds pubs around the country putting on Arthur’s Day events, so why not get in touch with your local about playing there?
The judges – including representatives from Hot Press and RTÉ 2fm, as well as other leading industry and media figures – will decide on a shortlist of artists in each region to go forward to the Second Round. All of the tracks entered by the shortlisted bands will be made available here on the Guinness Arthur's Day Play on the Day website, where members of the public will vote for their favourite tracks. Following the public vote, the top four bands in each region will go forward to the Live Regional Finals, the winners of which will go forward to the National Final.
The National Winner of the Guinness Arthur's Day Play On The Day ultimate prize package will be selected at the final by the panel of judges.
The 2012 Guinness Arthur's Day – Play On The Day competition is a mouth-watering prospect for every up and coming band in the country... If you think you have what it takes to be the next big thing – this is your chance to prove it.
