Virgin Fest has just announced a contest through Oh Henry! to give unsigned Indie bands a chance to play at this year's festival. The contest is open to any Canadian band of any genre, and gives them the chance to play Virgin Festival Toronto, September 6th and 7th.
To enter, bands must goto www.whatfeedsyourhunger.ca
