Farmfestival are renowned for championing new music so this year they are offering the prize of a slot at the festival to anyone who can come up with a spark of lyrical genius this summer.
Your task to win the prize is to write and film a song which includes farm/farmfest/farmfestival in its title or lyrics. This can take the form of a cover, twisted to fit the brief or a totally original piece – the more inventive and relevant to the festival, the better!
Entries need to be filmed and uploaded to youtube/vimeo and posted to Farmfestival Somerset on their Facebook page by June 24th.
Judging will be based on inventiveness with the theme, and songwriting. Social media interaction, comments and plays will also come into consideration, as a sign of fan engagement.

The festival have also announced Bristol talent, Mr.Woodnote, Lil Rhys & Eva Lazarus, and One Shot reggae. Plus folk rocksters, Babeshadow, back with a new album after supporting Florence + The Machine and The Drums on The Cosmic Love Tour in 2010.
Mr Woodnote's loop pedal Saxophone shows are becoming local legend. Creating every track from scratch, no 2 shows are ever the same. For Farmfestival, he'll be teaming up with Lil Rhys and Eva Lazarus, who'll be dropping their distinctive vocal flavours into the mix to maximum effect!
These acts along with the previously announced Crazy P Soundsystem replace The Skints, who sadly cannot play this year due to a booking error beyond our control.
To celebrate the final lineup announcement, Farmfestival have released the first in their new Dj mix series. 'Beats n Bleats Volume 1' is a sunshine inducing vinyl only affair by Bristol based Paulo Fernandez. It'll sure put a smile on your face.
