Play Live on the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival!

ReverbNation partners with Ernie Ball for the 2nd straight year to get unsigned bands on the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival!  Use your ReverbNation Press Kit (RPK) to register at Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. Artists using their RPKs automatically get free marketing tools to help them get votes! This opportunity ends September 1st.

About 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival

The main stage will feature performances from multi-platinum rock bands Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind and Papa Roach, along with breaking band Adelitas Way. In addition, the Ernie Ball Stage and Jägermeister Stage in the festival area will include performances from multi-platinum headliner P.O.D., as well as up-and-coming artists Deuce, Fozzy, Redlight King, Mindset Evolution, In This Moment, Thousand Foot Krutch, Candlelight Red and a local Battle Of The Bands winners.

This is how it works

To enter the competition, artists upload music and create a profile on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival and have until September 1st to have their fans vote for them. Use your ReverbNation Press Kit (RPK) to register for FREE at Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.

The bands that submit their RPK tend to have an advantage over the bands that do not use an RPK because they get the benefit of getting a free marketing toolkit to help them get their fans to vote for them. For last year’s contest, Mindset Evolution, signed up with their RPK and they won the Grand Prize! You’ll see them on the tour this year. Congrats Mindset Evolution!

The Top 100 bands receiving the most fan votes in each tour market will be judged by a panel of industry professionals and UPROAR artists. This panel will then choose one (1) ReverbNation winner for each tour market. There are 28 tour markets, so a total of 28 ReverbNation artists will get the chance to perform! Winners for each market will be announced two weeks before that tour date. The winners will perform on the Ernie Ball Stage at the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival and will be automatically entered into the grand prize competition.

Grand Prize Package includes:

• A coveted spot to play live on the entire 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival
• Record an EP with legendary producer/mixer Jay Baumgardner at world famous NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA
• $10,000 worth of music gear
