Ernie Ball Play and Warped Tour have launched a contest for emerging bands to play at Vans Warped Tour this summer. Forty-one bands will win a slot to perform on the Warped Tour main stage, and one band will receive the grand prize of a three-song EP produced by Multiplatinum producer John Feldmann (All Time Low, Blink-182, Sum 41) as well as a $10,000 Guitar Center shopping spree, Ernie Ball Music Man instrument and strings, GoPro Hero 5 black camera kit and more--a prize worth over $60,000.
The contest is open to bands or singer-songwriters who are legal residents of the U.S. and District of Columbia (excluding Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico) and 18 years of age or older. Between one and five video submissions per artists will be accepted. Submissions must be a video of an original song--no covers accepted. The top 50 artists for each market will be evaluated by the judging panel. Videos will be judged on: technique, authenticity, originality and style.
The deadline to submit is May 31.
