Beautiful Wild noise

songwriting competition

The Brief

The places we live are becoming less wild. We need to put nature into recovery. We need a Wilder Future and Wilder Derbyshire.

But to make change we need to make noise. Beautiful, wild noise. 

We’re looking for bands, songwriters and singers to pen a song about wildlife to spearhead our Wilder Future campaign. Your song will be listed on our website, promoted to our 25,000+ social media followers and voted for by the public. The winner will perform at Wildside Festival 2019.

How to enter

Step 1

Gather the band, or if you’re a solo artist grab a pen, and compose your wild song. It can be as simple, complex or abstract as you like but should look to explore the following:

·         UK wildlife and landscapes

·         How nature makes us feel

·         A vision of a wilder future

To help you, you can learn more about our Wilder Future campaign here.


Step 2

Record your song. No fancy studio required. You can use your phone, computer or home studio. Videos are fine, too. Your song just needs to be audible and in a digital format.


Step 3

Send us your song by March 31st 2019. Attach it in an email or use WeTransfer to send your song to along with the following details:

·         Your name and contact details

·         Band / Artists name

·         Song title

·         Description of your song in 100 words


Step 4

We’ll add your song to the Wildside Festival website, promote it and open up voting.

The winner will be announced on May 10th.
