Voting is well underway in the Mercury’s Road to Riverside.
Almost 50 bands from across the world are vying to win a slot on stage at this year’s Riverside Festival, which will take place on The Meadows in Stamford on Saturday, 7 July.
From Argentinian rock to Welsh hip-hop, the range of entries this year ensures everyone will find a band to suit their taste.
Hundreds of people have already cast their votes but there are a few rules. For the online vote it is strictly only one vote per person. You must include your first name, surname and a full address in order for your vote to be counted.
You can vote online at www.stamfordmercury.co.uk/riverside.
You can also vote by a coupon which is published in the Mercury. You can vote by coupon as many times as you like, but photocopies will not be accepted.
The winner of the slot at the Riverside Festival will be announced in the pages of the Mercury on Friday, April 6.
The festival itself will be ticketed for the first time ever this year. Early bird tickets costing £5 (£3 for children) are available online at www.stamfordartscentre.com or by calling the box office on 01780 763203.
