The Extreme Tour 2014 - XTX
Posted by: Extreme Tour Events | When: –
The Extreme Tour presents its 20th year of festival-style events across the United States (and now Canada, Japan, Brazil, India, and The Netherlands). Selected bands can request to perform as much or as little of the tour schedule as they feel they can do. However, priority is given to artists who can do a minimum of two weeks of consecutive dates. The Extreme Tour takes care of travel expenses like housing and food on varying levels and some artists will be compensated for their participation with an additional travel stipend.
The U.S. Tour would like to have 50-75 Sonicbids bands for 2014. The International tour teams plans to accept an additional 15-30 Sonicbids bands based on availability of slots and performances.
All selected artists will receive mentoring and assistance from a group of Industry Veterans who have agreed to help the selected 2014 artists develop their music and careers beyond just their involvement with the Extreme Tour. Past Extreme Tour artist mentors have been influences and mentors for bands and artists like: The Trans Siberian Orchestra, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, System Of A Down, Bad Brains, P.O.D., Kutless, Switchfoot, Jeremy Camp, and countless other major names in the entertainment industry.
Also, unlike most other major tours, Extreme Tour artists do not pay a merchandising fee to the tour, and receive 100 % of their merchandise sales.
There will be five U.S. Tour teams, each doing multiple events in over 100 separate cities and markets nationwide. Shows will take place at the club, theater, and festival level in most major U.S. Markets.
The tour schedule will run for 6 months, from May through October. When you submit, you will be able to specify how much of the tour schedule you are looking to be a part of. An average of 7-10 bands perform in each city. While you may apply for all cities, you are NOT required to.
In addition to the U.S. Tour, the Extreme Tour has again added tours in Canada, Japan, Brazil, India, The Philippines and The Netherlands to its schedule. These dates will be in addition to the already expansive tour schedule planned for the Continental United States. The Canadian Extreme Tour Leg will run throughout the month of August and will cover the Central and Western portion of Canada with stops from Winnepeg, Manitoba to Vancouver, BC and many points in between.
Submissions in ALL genres are accepted, including genres that often are not accepted for other major tours like: punk, hardcore, metal, rock and roll, hip-hop, spoken word, comedy, etc.
Past performers include: KJ-52 (Uprok Records); Kutless (BEC Recordings); Falling Up (BEC Recordings); Spoken (Tooth and Nail Records); Stutterfly (Maverick Records); L.A. Symphony (Gotee Records); House of Heroes (Gotee Records); and many, many more.
About Extreme Tour:
The Extreme Tour is a tour with a mission. The artists and volunteers of the Extreme Tour are coming to bring a rallying cry of freedom. Freedom from ignorance. Freedom from seclusion. Freedom from violence. Freedom from the destructive messages, themes, and agendas of a machine bent on inhuman profit.
In these times, much of the Industry behind rock and roll culture has advocated a costly and ruinous message of self-gratification by glorifying hatred, drug use, alcoholism, and promiscuity. Because the industry has found this destructive message to be profitable, as a whole, it has ignored the great social cost. The Extreme Tour Movement marks the beginning of a change in that agenda.
The Extreme Tour will bring an alternative voice to your community this summer. The Extreme Tour will present a proposal of change. This change that starts with the artists and performers involved in this movement. The participants in the Extreme Tour discard the destructive messages and lifestyles advocated and glorified by Rock and Roll's past, and embrace a new message of hope.
Artists submitting must be positive. No profanity or derogatory lyrics. The tour has been sponsored and endorsed by: AUDIX, Vic Firth, MyStar Sound, FreshPark Skate Equipment, Nextsport Skate and Scooters, Luis Palau's "Livin' It" Alliance, Phonetic Propoganda Clothing, and EMC Board Co.
