Open for the Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour 2018


Academy Events and Fireball are teaming up with Kerrang! to find local bands across the country to join the line-up for the Fireball: Fuelling The Fire Tour 2018.

You could be opening for Flogging Molly, The Bronx, Face To Face and Lost In Stereo as part of this mammoth tour when it comes to your hometown. Win the chance to perform to huge crowds at iconic venues when the tour hits the road this December.

The Fireball: Fuelling The Tour, now in its third year, celebrates both iconic and breaking punk, ska, reggae and hardcore bands. With a party spirit at the heart of every night, you can expect to see confetti cannons, toilet-roll guns and plenty of Fireball across the tour, and you could be a part of it!

To enter, just fill out the form below and tell us why you're the perfect band to be our local opening act. Three bands from each city will then be chosen by Academy Events, and will compete in a live heat judged by Fireball, Kerrang! and music industry experts, to be crowned the overall winner and perform at their local Fuelling The Fire Tour date.

Here's some words of encouragement from The Bronx's Matt Caughthran:

Boring Legal Bit

Competition closes at midnight on Monday 16 July 2018. One entry per band, entrants must be 18+ on date of performance and at least two members of the band must be based within 30 miles of the venue they are applying for. Winners will be notified by Wednesday 1 August 2018. Full terms and conditions can be found here.

About Fireball:

Fireball is a Canadian whisky-based cinnamon-flavoured liqueur produced by the Sazerac Company. The product was developed in Canada in the mid-1980s, forged during one of the coldest Canadian winters on record by blending smooth Canadian whisky with sweet, spicy cinnamon. Fireball has blazed a trail of success across America before the flames leapt over to UK shores and is one of the world’s fastest growing spirit brands. Best served straight from the freezer as a shot - it delivers a taste like no other.

Fireball is loud, uncompromising and relentless. And it’s coming for you.
