This week on Remixes/Contests/Submissions…
We are celebrating this year’s Gaymers Camden Crawl Festival by giving two lucky users the opportunity to become roving reporters at the event this spring!
VIP tickets and media centre access backstage at the festival are up for grabs for two winners who will have the opportunity to interview a host of the event’s big names. These two winners will have AAA passes for the Crawl’s high-profile media run and have the opportunity to use Soundclouds brand new ‘Record’ function to interview an array of artists and upload the content direct to Soundcloud for all other users to hear.
To enter the competition all you need to do is adopt your preferred radio journalist-style and upload an audio snippet to your profile of you asking ONE question to your dream Gaymers Camden Crawl headliner. Then simply tag it #camdencrawl in the title and hit save.
The two winners will be picked by a leading UK music broadcast journalist as the most original and interesting questions submitted.
