Where your bedroom is the stage
THE 2011 RED BULL BEDROOM JAM SEASON BEGINS
Now in its fifth year, Red Bull Bedroom Jam, the weekly live music webcast that has propelled the careers of multiple bands across the UK rock scene, has returned, and is once again on the lookout for young, talented bands to launch into the spotlight.
Now fully established within the scene, the unrivaled digital platform for aspiring musicians will this year offer bands, (with at least one member under the age of 22), the chance of joining the Bedroom Jam tour; taking in five of the biggest UK festivals (including Sonisphere, Download Festival, Hevy, Underage and T In the Park) ,a recording session at the Red Bull Studios London and the chance to support an established band on a major UK tour.
You And What Army, the band chosen in 2010, spent two weeks at the studio and then joined Kids In Glass Houses for their UK Tour. Front man Kieran described his experience as “a once in a lifetime opportunity… that’s taken the band to the next level. Having gone from performing a show in my bedroom to playing Shepherd’s Bush Empire, it’s been a phenomenal year.”
Aled Phillips from Kids In Glass Houses said:
“Having played with You And What Army on tour this year I’ve seen what a massive opportunity this is for young, up and coming bands. Their energy and excitement really shone through at the shows, I can’t wait to see what this year’s season brings!”
