Donegal Youth Service are working in partnership with Letterkenny Live festival this year to bring you Party in the Car Park on Saturday 18th August.
The best young talent from across the county are now being asked to submit an online video of themselves playing live, with the top 12 acts having the opportunity to play the big Letterkenny Live gig rig on Oliver Plunkett Road on the Saturday afternoon.
This event has been developed as a way of giving Letterkenny Live more of a festival feel, as the Donegal Youth Service will deliver their annual Party in The Park as part of the full weekend of activities.
This annual event is a real showcase for local young bands combined with a range of family fun activities and attracts upwards of 1000 young people each year. This year it has been re-named as Party in The Car Park and the youth service will have access to the full Letterkenny Live set up from 1.30pm to 5.30pm.
Anyone who would like to perform on the Letterkenny Live gig rig can now submit a youtube or other format video of themselves performing a song via the Party in the Car Park event page on facebook.
If you do not have any previously recorded video you can also contact the Letterkenny Youth Information Centre or Loft LK for details on opportunities to have a performance recorded. The competition is open to all acts in the 12-25 age group.
The top 10 acts will be chosen by a panel of adjudicators with the final 2 places being put up for grabs in a Facebook competition. This process will begin once the first 10 acts have been chosen. Deadline for posting your video is midnight on July 1st. The 10 top acts will be announced by the 6th July with the voting for the final 2 places taking place between 7th and 13th July.
