Triston Finnis, of Twisted Melon, says: “The bar looks extremely high on this one with acts from King’s Lynn and as far afield as Colchester. 

“Acts perform a 30-minute set to our music industry panel with the winner progressing to our on-air KL.FM semi-finals.

“It all kicks off at 4.30pm, as usual is free entry and all ages are welcome if accompanied by an adult.

“Which of these amazing acts will progress to win radio airtime and ultimately performing to thousands at this summer’s Festival Too?


Chasin Vegas are an anthemic, Indie Rock/Brit Pop four-piece hailing from Suffolk and Essex.

Since releasing their debut single, Times Are Hard, and more recently its follow up, Feel It, the band have been featured on Australian TV (The 1700 Music Show) and praised as a band to watch by Brit Pop legend and Shed Seven front-man, Rick Witter.

With the debut EP due for release later this spring, and a string of festivals lined up for the band supporting the likes of Toploader and The Feeling, 2016 looks to be the year that will cement the name Chasin Vegas.

Jim and Silvio met about three years ago – a fluke meeting and a chat in a car park – Jim the aspiring musician and Silvio the word-smith.

Together after a couple years of jamming, Tickin Boxes was born, a festival-gigging band with their own material and through last summer’s efforts they raised £10k for Cancer Research UK.

The music they play has a very rocky edge with a sprinkle of folk. Songs are centred around real experiences, traumas and magic; creating new material is by far their biggest driver, with passion and emotions captured and delivered in song. An amateur band, they are in the midst of recording their first album.
