SingStar UK: Glastonbury festival is calling

Are you a fan of SingStar? Fancy yourself as the next Freddie Mercury? Live in the UK? If so, then Sony has something right up your street – the chance to take to the stage at this year’s prestigious Glastonbury festival.

Teaming up with club brand Guilty Pleasures as part of the fifth anniversary of the series, Sony is inviting fans to take part in a series of events titled Road to Glastonbury, where punters can record themselves belting out their favourite ‘guilty pleasure’ tracks. Alternatively, you can upload them from home via the SingStar website.

Events have already been held in London and Manchester, though there’s still two more to go – Brighton this weekend, and London the following week. Winners will bag themselves ‘PlayStation prizes’ as well as a special VIP trip giving them to the chance to perform on stage at Glastonbury.

SCE UK’s junior product manager of SingStar, Corrie Fenner, commented: SingStar is equally important to the male and female markets, and we’d like to think it’s a title that’s entertaining for, and loved by, all generations and genders.”

“As the franchise evolves, we will look for new ways to help ensure that SingStar appeals to everyone, and by doing so, acts as a gateway which helps bring in gamers from across the spectrum.”
