Red Bull Bedroom Jam opens for 2012
Evolving each year, 2012 marks a new chapter in the program which, among its many others benefits, will now give 3 successful bands the chance to devise, create and produce their very own high spec music video in conjunction with a team of industry professionals – so this year there’s even more reason to get uploading!
As always, this year’s Red Bull Bedroom Jam will be giving 8 bands the chance to play four of the UK’s best summer festivals – Slam Dunk, Hevy, Download and Sonisphere. In addition to this, the overall champion will then get studio time in the state-of-the-art recording space, Red Bull Studios London and a support slot of a major artist’s UK wide tour.
To kick off the 2012 season, from Monday 30th January 15 weekly shows will present the best of this year’s entries before it goes to the vote on who will make it through to the festival stage. Hosting the shows this year is Kerrang!’s new bands editor and rock connoisseur, Katie P. The judging panel who will be helping pick the cream of the crop to go through to the festival stage and later, the live final is: editor Ben Patashnik (Rock Sound), festival booker Andy Copping (Download Festival) and rock agent Becky Sugden (The Agency Group).
How it works:
Bands can enter Red Bull Bedroom Jam now by uploading their music video to redbullbedroomjam.com
One band will be chosen each week for 15 weeks, using the Buzz Chart system. These bands will have the Bedroom Jam team come and record a live show direct from their bedrooms
From these 15 bands, 8 will be chosen by the panel of judges to play the festival tour
At the end of the festival season the judges will choose three finalists. Each of these will have a TV-quality music video made for them
Then the final 3 will go head to head in a live final to see who walks away as the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Champion!
Last year’s Red Bull Bedroom Jam Champions, Page 44 have recently returned from their UK-wide tour supporting The Blackout and We Are The Ocean. Commenting on their RBBJ experience they said:
“It was incredible – absolutely amazing. Joining The Blackout and We Are The Ocean on tour was something we could never have dreamed of without the help of Red Bull Bedroom Jam. We’ve experienced so much and have so much to show since entering – we’ve really developed as a band!”
