Democracy Now: Vote for Your Favorite Local Band to Play Grand Point North

Posted By on Thu, May 23, 2013 at 2:49 PM

As mentioned in this week's Soundbites column, we're running a contest to fill one last slot at this year's Grand Point North Festival, set for Burlington's Waterfront Park on September 14 and 15. The contest is open to any local musician, band or DJ.

The nomination period in which fans, or even bands themselves, can suggest bands they'd like to see is now underway. The caveat is that at least one band member has to currently reside in Vermont. And no, just because Neko Case lives here doesn't mean you can nominate the New Pornographers. (Well, I guess you could. But they probably won't show up if they win, so use a little common sense, m'kay?) 

Once all the nominees are in, we'll pare that list down to a select final few and put it to a vote to see who will be joining Grace and company onstage. For all the details and to start nominating acts, go here.

This is democracy in action, folks. So vote early and often. But don't take our word for it. Let's ask Puff Daddy how he feels about the importance of voting. Puffy?
