Acts edge closer to Bestival slot

Musicians from the Isle of Wight have moved one step closer to winning the chance to perform at Bestival.

Just four acts have been chosen to go through to next month's Red Hot Talent final in Southampton.

The lucky quartet is Folklore Trio, Me and My Sister, Lucid and Kingz of Vocals.

Acts were given just five minutes to impress the judges, who included Bestival organiser Rob da Bank, at the heat, which was held at Quay Arts in Newport.

They will now go on to perform at the University of Southampton in the final of the competition on May 5th.

Competition winners will pick up a £1,000 prize, as well as the chance to perform at Bestival, which takes place from September 9-12th 2010 at Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park.

The winning act will also be offered the opportunity to perform on Red Funnel's ferry crossings to and from the Isle of Wight throughout the summer.

Acts already confirmed to play at this summer's Bestival include The Flaming Lips, LCD Soundsystem and The Prodigy. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19723247-ADNFCR
