A chance to play in front of a large crowd can be big for a local artist looking to get more fans and become well known. Their are some local bands looking to do just that. Ernie Ball is holding a contest where 41 bands will be selected to perform (each at a different city) on the main stage at the Vans Warped Tour . Then their is the grand prize for one lucky band that includes a 3 song EP produced by multi-platinum producer John Feldmann, a $10,000 Guitar Center shopping spree, and over $20,000 in other prizes. The Ernie Ball Presents PLAY Warped Tour Contest consists of three parts. A phase that measures and ranks the online activity of each entrant’s submission, a skill contest whereby the Judging Panel will judge and choose a winning entrant based on judging criteria as the finalist for each of the 41 tour stops and a skill contest where the Judging Panel will judge the 41 finalists and choose a grand prize winner.
Check out the locals that are currently trying to get on that main stage. As of right now Canon City band Fighting the Phoenix is ranked 3rd overall in the trending channels on the contest.
