10klf.gifI’m just loving this idea of a Cosmic Break contest at the 10,000 Lakes Festival. If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a competition where you vote for which of 30 smaller bands you want to see play at the festival in 3 open slots. Personally, I think this is a fantastic idea for a festival and would love to see more festivals adopt this concept. Not only does it create good promotion for all bands involved, (especially the winners) it also helps in spreading the word about the festival. Pretty much a win win situation for all. There are just a few more days left for voting, so if you want to see any of the bands play, head on over to:
