Last Tuesday we closed the polls for the Euroblast Festival band competition. The stakes were high: the winning band gets to play at the festival! We've taken some time to count the votes and we are now ready to announce the winner.
First, we would like to thank all the bands that participated. We had a very nice mix of bands, and we were pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the submitted music. The number of candidates was an order of magnitude larger than we had expected, which posed some problems initially, but in the end it all seems to have worked out.
Second, we would also like to thank all the fans that took the time to vote for their favourites. over 1400 votes were cast! And finally, we would like to thank the Euroblast Festival team for making this competition possible.
Now, onto the results! Let's get straight to the point. The top 10 can be viewed below.
