GPN Band Contest Nominations Now Open

Posted By on Wed, May 6, 2015 at 2:24 PM

For the third year in a row, Seven Days is running a contest to let our readers decide which Vermont musical act gets to open the Grand Point North festival in September. These can be bands, solo acts, DJs, the didgeridi-dude from Church Street, Bernie Sanders, whoever — as long as they are local.

BTW, in order to qualify as local, at least one member of the nominated group must currently reside in Vermont. Past winners were the DuPont Brothers, in 2013, and Dwight & Nicole last year. Here's how it works:

Beginning Wednesday, May 6, fans or artists themselves can nominate local acts they'd like to see on the GPN stage. Then, on Thursday, May 14, voting will be open to the public and the real fun begins. The act with the most votes at the end of the day on Friday, May 22, is the victor. That will be announced on Wednesday, May 27. 

Here's the link to the nomination page. And here's a video of Grace Potter singing "With a Little Help From My Friends" with pretty much every band at last year's GPN.
