Hennessy, the world’s number one selling cognac, is looking for Australian bands to perform at the 2014 Blues Passions festival in Cognac, France.

The Blues Passion festival is a weeklong festival held in the picturesque town of Cognac. For the second year, emerging Australian artists are being sought in Hennessy’s international Talent Quest. The winning artists will perform alongside the festival’s musical legends and accomplished artists.

Entries from a wide range of genres, including blues, soul, funk, folk, R&B, boogie, swing, hip hop, county and rock ‘n’ roll will be considered by a panel of judges including festival founder Michel Rolland and music journalists from participating countries. They will choose ten finalists, who will then be published on the Hennessy website where fans will vote for the winner.

The festival’s 2014 line-up includes Lily Allen, Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters, George Benson and Steven Seagal.

Entries close soon, so head to hennessymusic.com.au.
