Fame is at the fingertips of 208 bands aspiring to be the next big thing with TouchTunes’ 2014 Breakout Band competition. The contest, which officially kicked off last week, puts a modern twist on the battle of the bands, using TouchTunes’ social jukebox mobile app and its network of location-based jukeboxes to bring the music to the people in a social, fun setting.
The bands involved in the contest have the opportunity to hit the fame jackpot, with their music being promoted to over 30 million users at over 60,000 TouchTunes bars and restaurants nationwide. The bands can use TouchTunes’ massive reach to promote their music to millions of music enthusiasts.
The competing bands will submit one original song online for consideration. The submissions will be added to a national themed music playlist and promoted across the TouchTunes network. Fans of competing bands will be encouraged to download the TouchTunes mobile app, find locations and blast their favorite band’s music at their local hangout. A panel of music experts will evaluate entries based upon various criteria including creativity, originality of music and public appeal. The winning band will get a single release with Photo Finish Records, $3,000 and a national music promotion on TouchTunes.
