Pethrophile Promotions (Cork) in the cooperation with Mammothfest will be running a competition to find the best Irish metal band, who will then get to play at the Fest in Brighton, UK on the 5th to the 7th October 2018! Across the UK, 10 other promoters will be running similar competitions, so altogether there will be 11 amazing bands sent off to play Mammothfest​ where the best band will be decided after they all play the festival!

Official Mammothfest Statement…
We at MAMMOTHFEST pride ourselves on presenting THE BEST bands at our festival and the only way to do that is for us to get out there and see for ourselves the incredible talent that can be found across the UK.
We therefore have hand selected 11 promoters/venues across the UK (and Ireland) to start looking for the best bands who can all compete (for free) for a chance to win their regional heats and go forward to compete in the national final at MAMMOTHFEST 2018 on SUNDAY 7TH OCTOBER 2018.
Mammothfest simply want to not only find the best bands in each area and have them all perform/compete together on the Sunday at Mammothfest 2018 where they will compete in the national final for a chance to be crowned the MAMMOTHFEST BEST BAND 2018. We hope this will give bands a leg up in this tough industry!

Is this festival just a huge battle of the bands?

Not a festival!

4 Heats... Semi-Finals... and a Final...
It's all in the description above.

Closing date for entries is this weekend.

Each event will have guest headliners, too.

Local final to pick a winner going forward to play at the festivals own grand final.

So all the bands playing at this are regional battle of the band winners, and the final is to find the best band at the festival?

Can't see this going well for the Irish winners, at least the UK bands will be able to bring buses of mates to it.

Regional winners get to play a large UK metal festival. Which is usually where these things end...
Mammothfest have just decided to go one step further to try and help give the bands a bit more attention and exposure.

Make of that, what you wish!

The whole point of entering the competition is to get a chance to play in front of a new audience. That's how festivals work and why bands travel to play at them.

So which is it?

Also AntonArcane, Yes, I do know how festivals work. Festivals don't usually involve a competition. That's what a battle of the bands is.

Or do the 'winners' of Mammothfest get a spot at another festival?

MAMMOTHFEST is the name of the festival in the UK.

https://mammothfest.uk/

The local competitions in Ireland and around the UK are not festivals. Just Battle of the Bands competitions.

The winners of each local competition will get to play at MAMMOTHFEST in October.

Similar to the 'Bloodstock - Metal 2 The Masses' competition that runs in Fibers the last few years.

Are there any other bands playing Mammothfest, or just the winners of the regional contests?

What prize does the winner of Mammothfest get?

From everything posted on here, this is a battle of the bands, not a festival.
