VOTE FOR YOUR RELENTLESS ‘HERE TO BE HEARD’ DJ WINNER
The ultimate and unrivalled platform to showcase emerging musical talent, Relentless presents Here To Be Heard launched this year’s DJ competition with the incredibly successful electronic-rock band Modestep. With a huge amount of entries this year, the band has narrowed the submissions down to five exciting acts who are now battling it out to win a slot to support Modestep on the Relentless stage at Leeds Festival.
Each finalist has been mentored by the brilliant, London-based band to give them the best chance of winning as they enter the final stage of the competition, as well as for them to glean as much advice from a band that has made it in today’s competitive music industry.
Modestep on selecting the finalists: “We were looking for original flare and stand-out mixes, but not any genre in particular. Filtering down the finalists into the top five was harder than we thought! We think the final five are all hugely talented and what’s great is that they all have their own individual sound and swagger. We can’t wait to see the winner play live at Leeds and help us shut down the festival in style on Sunday night.”
