Good morning everyone and welcome to yet another Katie P blog for the awesome Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2012!
We have now done fifteen shoots for RBBJ 2012, which means we now have all of our 15 bands set for the full Festival Buzz Chart!
This week myself and the Red Bul team headed to Droitwich Spa to film a Red Bull Bedroom Jam with melodic rockers STAKEOUT!
The shoot took place in bassist Lee’s parents house – and we had a brilliant day hanging out with the four-piece, their friends and Lee’s family.
As soon as we arrived, we headed up to Lee’s Bedroom and began removing all his furniture – and replacing it with musical instruments and giant StakeOut banners!
Here is Lee putting up posters behind the drum-kit – including an awesome Green Day picture!
Here is vocalist/guitarist Matt pulling a rather funny face – holding up an old live photo of the band that we found in the house!
The drum-kit looked amazing when it was all set up and ready to go!
Here is synth-player Ben (brilliant T-shirt) about to record some secret band confessions to a camera in the family bathroom!
And finally – with everything set up and ready to go – here is drummer Alex, as we are about to press record and start STAKEOUT‘s Bedroom Jam!
So there you go! That was STAKEOUT - big thank you to them and their friends (and a massive extra thank you to Lee’s lovely mum and dad) for a brilliant day!
So – there you go – all 15 bands have been selected through the Buzz Chart – by you the fans!
Those 15 bands are now all in a Festival Buzz Chart – and the band at the top of that chart in a few weeks time will automatically go on to get to play all the best UK festivals this summer.
Six more of those Festival Chart bands will then be hand-picked and selected by our panel of judges – alongside one extra Wild Card Band – which the judges will have selected from all of the videos uploaded onto the Bedroom Jam site this season.
Sound complicated? Don’t worry – there will be plenty of updates on Twitter and Facebook over the coming days/weeks to let you know what is what!
Meanwhile, I’ll be seeing you on Monday at 5pm! Bye!
