Who are India’s next big bands? Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2011 will find them
(Posted on behalf of Little Big Noise)
4 bedroom bands will get the chance to perform at some of the most anticipated festivals in the country and each of these bands will get a brand new music video shot in their bedrooms by the coolest, edgiest directors at social media and production house, Jack in the Box.
This is what Red Bull Bedroom Jam 2011 is set to do this November: Scour the country for the best talent among homegrown bands across all genres – rock, metal, alternative, hip-hop, singer-songwriters, pop, funk and so on – and put the best 4 bands in the spotlight.
The idea is simple: Most musicians showcase explosive creativity while jamming in their bedrooms, making the bedroom the best place to find original, unidentified, fresh talent. Red Bull Bedroom Jam India hunts down these bedroom bands and gives them a platform to take their music to the rest of the world.
Bands from across India can upload their home-produced music video on www.redbullbedroomjam.in by 7th November. After which, fans log in and vote for the ones they like, and the winners are picked based on their popularity on the ‘Buzz Chart’. The best 8 bands will then play at a club opening and will open for some of the biggest headlining acts in the country and will compete to be the final, winning 4 bands.
Red Bull Bedroom Jam debuted in India in 2010 and saw breakthrough bedroom bands Colossal Figures (Delhi), Inner Sanctum (Bangalore), Noiseware (Pune) and Blakc (Mumbai) join the Red Bull Bedroom Jam family of 1,500 bands in countries such as the UK, Australia, Mexico and Sweden. These winning bands got new music videos and performance slots at festivals like Bacardi NH7 Weekender, Great Indian Rock, BITS Pilani, The Tilt and Symbiosis.
