Got a band in Montpellier?

If the answer to this question is yes, DuelsRock need you! Online registration for the knockout competition held at Rockstore from February is now open so why not enter? Our good friends, The Peace ‘n’ Love Cowboys were among the bands that took part last year and we had a great time watching them play for free. Not that we wouldn’t have paid of course.

We’ve seen many mainstream bands perform at Rockstore too, Metronomy, Us3 and Yuck to name a few. Hopefully, the rumoured refit at the end of the year will bring even more big names to the only city centre venue big enough to house them.

Another champion of local bands is L’incroyable Festival 2+2=5 who run several events throughout the year. We spent a great weekend with them at their very first festival in 2010 and they’ve gone from strength to strength since. The next event will be at Secret Place on 14th and 15th September and they recently held a free gig on the Esplanade. Let us know if you were there.

If you do happen to play in a local band please feel free to post details on our Facebook page. Please also let us know of any gigs you may have or venues that you would recommend. Thanks.
