Perform on the main stage at Download!

Most legendary musicians began their careers rocking out in the solace of their bedrooms. By getting involved with the Red Bull Bedroom Jam, a unique online talent-search show, this could pay off for you and your band too!

This Summer RBBJ will be heading to the Download Festival. Playing the Red Bull Bedroom Jam stage across the three day festival will be a host of the best hard rock bands from all 'seasons' of the Bedroom Jam with headline slots from My Passion, Dissolved In and None The Less…but there is one space still to be filled for one very lucky new band.

For the first time ever an unknown band will get to play the main stage at Download in a live broadcast to the big screens from their bedroom! This world first will see the virtual gig beamed to thousands of rockers ahead of the performance from Marilyn Manson.

If you´ve got the talent and are building your fanbase then your upload could get you to Download. Do in now in the following three easy steps:

1. Upload your video to Don´t worry about the quality, a mobile phone vid of you playing in your bedroom will do… it´s the talent that counts
2. Get your fans to log on, then watch and rate your vid
3. The most popular artists get selected for a live-streamed performance. On broadcast day, the Red Bull Bedroom Jam crew collect the musicians and selected mates and fans, and the winners rock out in front of the camera!

For this one off special, videos will have to be uploaded by Friday 5 June. The winners will then be informed on Monday 8 June. So, what are you waiting for? Your next gig could be at Download!
