White Noize to celebrate island music

Island musical talent could be showcased to the full at this year's Isle of Wight Festival with the return of White Noize.

Organised by Platform One, White Noize will see some of the best local groups taking part in open auditions to receive a critique of their performance and material. The event is to be held on June 1st and will see artists set before a range of judges from the music industry, allowing those taking part to get constructive criticism on how to improve.

Those deemed good enough by the expert panel at Platform One could even be given the chance to perform at this year's iconic festival in June.

David Pontin, Platform One director, commented: "This is not a battle of the bands but an opportunity to take part in a professional showcase and get some constructive feedback on your band, your songs and your performance.

"Playing at the festival is a privilege and bands must work hard for this opportunity and take it seriously."

Festival organiser John Giddings added that Platform One plays an important role in preparing young talent for the rigours of the music industry and stated: "I am very proud to be a patron of Platform One."

Meanwhile, the winner of this year's Isle of Wight Festival DJ Competition has been named as 16-year-old Ben Firth, perhaps better known as DJ Future.

He is now set to perform at this year's Isle of Wight Festivalin the Dance Tent, having seen off some stiff competition for his crown.

Described as one of the most up-and-coming DJ talents in the UK at present, DJ Future wowed the judges of the competition with his array of energetic and fresh mixes and now all that remains is for the talented youngster to do the same for this year's festival crowds.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801579500-ADNFCR
