FTW ROCK FEST is, a two-part event spanning seven hours showcasing regional bands competing for a record deal with Mob Rock Records and distribution through Whomagdistribution and Sony/The Orchard in addition to an all-star lineup of musical entertainment from recording industry veterans, Test Human, and the supergroup Bang Rok, comprised of members of Crazy TownX, Fishbone, Primus, and lead singer PacMan.
Regional acts are going to be limited to twelve acts due to time constraints. Acts submitting are encouraged to do so in a timely fashion in order to be cleared through the submission process. There is a submission fee for this competition. The competition will be judged by a celebrity guest panel. All acts must perform original music. Absolutely no cover songs. There will be no exceptions to this mandate. Rock On!
