Got talent? Got a band? Got a burning desire to get your name in Time Out?

Got talent? Got a band? Got a burning desire to get your name in Time Out? Then sit down and let’s have a chat. See, we love Dubai’s local music scene, but we know how hard it is for bands here to get themselves heard – literally. So in order to redress the balance, we’re starting up the new Time Out Dubai Band of the Month Competition.

All you have to do is send through samples of your work (read on for info); the best will appear on to battle it out in a readers’ poll. Each month’s winner will then get an interview in Time Out Dubai, including a studio photoshoot and a place in our online hall of fame. The runners-up will be entered back into the competition alongside new contenders.

The competition is open to solo artists as well as bands, but only to those based in Dubai – at least half the band’s members must live in the emirate to qualify. Fit the bill? Then get online! You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain…
To enter, email headed ‘Band of the month: (Your band name)’ with a short text biography and links to a MySpace or other web page that contains at least two full songs. Do not send attachments. Selections made at editor’s discretion.
