Fireball’s Hottest Band Competition Launches with Less Than Jake UK Tour

This fall Less Than Jake returns to the UK with Goldfinger, Save Ferris, Thieves Of Liberty and DJ Matt Stocks performing every night. Not only that Fireball’s Hottest Band Competition will see a new band join each night! Ticket price thereafter is £18. Thieves Of Liberty were the winners last year. Competition is open now and your band could join the tour! Competition closes at midnight on Wednesday 31 July 2019. One entry per band, entrants must be 18+ on date of performance and at least two members of the band must be based within 30 miles of the venue they are applying for. Winners will be notified by Friday 9 August 2019 and announced on Monday 12 August 2019. Full terms and conditions can be found below.

Monique Powell of Save Ferris commented:

The last time Save Ferris played the UK with Less Than Jake and Goldfinger, we had a blast! So we’re very happy to be coming back to see all our friends and fans again, we missed you!”

Matt Reynolds, Fireball Brand UK Embassador.

Something that has always been very important to Fireball is supporting the up and coming. There’s so many excellent grassroots bands that never get the chance to be heard, which is why we started the Hottest Band competition right from the very first Fuelling the Fire Tour. It’s also a great excuse for us to sit down and listen to some of the UK’s finest new music that’s not quite on the radar just yet.”

This September we’re embarking on our 4th annual Fireball: Fuelling the Fire Tour. It’s the most outrageous, downright criminally fun and cinnamoniest fortnight of the touring calendar and we absolutely haven’t relented on the great bands this year. We’re incredibly excited to welcome Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, our Hottest Band of 2019: Thieves of Liberty and veteran Fireball Tour DJ Matt Stocks into the fold, as well as some of the UK’s best emerging talent specially handpicked for each show and one ultra-special secret band that is still to be announced! So that’s five bands every night, a live DJ, excellent prize giveaways and as much Fireball as you can cram into your sticky mitts all for just £15 a ticket! Let’s party!”

Chris DeMakes of Less Than Jake

Yes! It’s that time of the year again. Less Than Jake is extremely excited to headline this year’s Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour. We wanted to ramp up the insanity this time around so we’re bringing along our friends in Goldfinger to celebrate with us. We can’t wait for these shows. It’s going to be epic! See ya soon!”

John “Feldy” Feldmann of Goldfinger

“UK! I have always felt at home in your beautiful countries… You have the best audiences, the best festivals, amazing food and I write really good songs there! I wanted to also thank Fireball for continuing to support live music; so pumped to do this tour!”
