Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival talent search

To coincide with the fourth edition of his Worldwide Festival, taking place July 2nd - 5th in Sete in the South of France, Gilles is organizing a talent search for the best new act or band. The contest will be judged by Gilles Peterson himself and a panel of key figures and artists from the music industry, such as Laurent Garnier, Christian Paulet (artist manager) and Aline. The winning act will perform live at Worldwide Festival on July 2, 2009, alongside artists including Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Diplo, Jazzanova, Theo Parrish, Soil & Pimp Sessions, and more.

Artists and bands wishing to take part should visit the WF website to register and collect a voting icon to put on their MySpace page, official website, Facebook site, blog, etc. The top three acts will be chosen by the judges from the twenty with the most votes. The judges will then also choose the big winner of the talent search. The top three will win Ableton Live software and M-Audio products. Registration and voting are now open until June 15th, and the winner will be announced at the end of June.
