Play Live on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour

ReverbNation partners with Ernie Ball for the 3rd straight year to get unsigned bands on Vans Warped Tour! Use your ReverbNation Press Kit (RPK) to register at Artists using their RPKs automatically get free marketing tools to help them get votes! But, seriously, hurry up because this opportunity ends June 1st!

About Ernie Ball: The 16th Ernie Ball Warped Tour Battle of the Bands is largest and longest-running unsigned artist competition of its kind (AND it’s 100% free to enter!).

Prizes: Ernie Ball gives talented, undiscovered artists worldwide a platform to play live on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour and win a 3-song EP with multi-platinum producer John Feldman, in addition to an incredible prize package which includes a $15,000 Guitar Center shopping spree!

This is how it works: To enter the competition, artists upload music and create a profile on the Warped Tour – Battle of The Bands website and have until June 1st to have their fans vote for them. Tip: Artists using their RPKs have a better chance of winning because ReverbNation arms them with fan-voting marketing tools, including emails to fans, Facebook applications and a Warped Tour banner for their Facebook Band Profile (shown below on Through The Fight’s profile).

Through The Fight used our RPK and got a cool banner on their Facebook Page

The Top 100 (based on votes) bands in each preferred city will be reviewed by a panel of industry professionals comprised of Warped Tour partners, 2012 Warped Tour Organizers, and Ernie Ball Inc.

Last year's Grand Prize winner, Danielle Barbe

Then, four bands from the Top 100 in each city will be selected to play live on the Ernie Ball Stage for each date of the 2012 Warped Tour. The Top Four last year were Danielle Barbe, June Divided, Taylor Thrash and Sleepwalker — all ReverbNation artists!

Danielle Barbe won the Grand Prize last year and she also gets to perform on the tour this year. Congrats Danielle!

    I love music and quite frankly I have been told I’m good at it, prob is I don’t have the correct resources to for fill my dream, partnered with my boy laylo (katlego tubisi) I have set forth a mission to become successful in the music industry. I believe we are the next big thing in hiphop/rap music and which ever producer that picks us up will not regret it.
