Organisers are calling for local musicians to pitch for a chance to play at one of the biggest events ever held in Northumberland.
The North Sea Tall Ships Regatta Blyth 2016 is being held over the August Bank Holiday and will feature five zones of free family entertainment including music and theatre.
Up for grabs are spaces on stages at venues including the beach amphitheatre and bandstand, and the Dun Cow Quay.
There are also opportunities for buskers - solo artists and duos – to play up to 30-minute slots at designated spots across the town from the beach and park to the town centre and quayside.
To join the festival fun as a musician, please apply at the Tall Ships Blyth website: www.tallshipsblyth2016.
The deadline for applications is 9.00am on Tuesday 3 May.
