Relentless Boardmasters 2012 will be giving two Live and Unsigned acts main stage slots at the music and sports festival next summer.

Relentless Boardmasters is Europe’s only surf, skate and music festival and will be held in Newquay, Cornwall and from 8-12 August.

Chris Grayston, managing director of Live and Unsigned, said: “Relentless Boardmasters has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and has quickly established itself as Europe’s largest surf/skate festival.

“The line-up rivals some of the biggest festivals in the world and the fact that it’s set on a beach! Who wouldn’t want to play to tens-of-thousands of people and get the chance to work on their tan at the same time?”

Live and Unsigned are appealing for the unsigned singers and bands to take part in their 2012 competition to find the best new acts of the year.

Acts are given the chance to play at The O2 in London and win £100,000s worth of prizes, including a £10,000 cash prize for development.

Auditions will begin in January 2012 and all acts in the competition are auditioned live. Acts that make it through the audition stage will get to perform to industry judges.

Names who have judged the competition in previous years include Radio 1 DJ’s Annie Nightingale, Ras Kwame, Tom Deacon and Daniel P Carter, Kerrang’s Alex Baker and Happy Mondays star Bez.

There is a small fee to enter, £5 for solo acts and £10 for bands.

All grand finalists will perform at Live Fest 2012 at The O2.
