For those who do not know the concept behind Metal 2 The Masses, it is a band competition that results in a plethora of prizes, the biggest being a slot on Bloodstock Open Air.
Hundreds to Thousands of bands enter this fantastic competition across the globe and each year it only gets better and better, sadly some regions are dropped and happily some are put in place.
2013 saw GMA's home county of Essex being dropped and so some bands opted to either go into the London, Kent or East Anglia regions. Anyhow lets have a breakdown of each M2TM going on and what regions are represented this year! Keep up to date with Bloodstock as each winner will be placed on the festival flyer! This can be seen here: http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/
Winning bands will be announced across the breadth of June and July.
"So what's in it for a successful band?

So below you will find the regions BOA is covering (we felt it was a little cheeky to do this next bit), however we will balance this against Germany's Wacken Open Air and see if anyone notices a little trend going on.
Whilst Bloodstock focuses on homegrown talent (which in GMA's opinion is the best thing to do), Wacken goes global. Conclusion: Bloodstock is the best ever Metal festival the UK will ever see!
