“It sounds like a bizarre fairytale and to be honest, it isn’t far off.” AU Magazine

Stendhal Festival of Art is delighted to announce that the third instalment of the most all encompassing music and arts festival in Northern Ireland will take place at Ballymully Cottage Farm, Limavady, on August 16 and 17, 2013.

Having steadily gained momentum over the past three years, the 2013 event will see the return of everything that has proven so popular with festival goers who have attended in the first two years along with a few new additions which aim to delight and inspire.

Stendhal Festival is accepting submissions from bands and artists via their own website and this year will also be working in conjunction with New York based ReverbNation who will also be accepting applications to play at the event from January 21 until April 30.

Organiser Ross Parkhill said: “We are delighted to be partnering with ReverbNation in order to accept band submissions this year. They have a huge audience and it will no doubt open doors for us in terms of getting the festival noticed not only in Northern Ireland but the entire UK and further afield.

“It also gives us a much broader range of bands to look at when it comes to piecing the programme together, so hopefully it will unearth a few gems for us.”

Erik Bernotas, Vice President of ReverbNation’s Live Group added: “We’re thrilled to be working with Stendhal Festival, as we look to expand our presence in the UK.”

Anyone wishing to submit an application to play please fill in the application form on before midnight on April 30.

To apply through ReverbNation simply click on the link found on or go to www.reverbnation.comand search Stendhal Festival of Art in the search box, the closing date on ReverbNation is also April 30.

If your band does not already have a ReverbNation Press Kit, you will be able to follow links on that page to create one.

Early bird tickets for the August event are expected to be on sale in February.
