The Break Contest is the official battle of the bands for The Bamboozle and The Bamboozle Left festivals. Created by Max Cruise Entertainment in New Jersey, The Break Contest serves as a pedestal to new and upcoming bands by giving them a chance to win coveted spots on each festival. This year's Bamboozle will be held May 5 & 6 at the Meadowlands Sports Complex and already has confirmed headliners Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance.

The Break Contest is separated into two contests: The Battle portion and the Online portion. The Battle portion will be held over several weeks during the months of February, March, and April in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. A panel of judges will critique the artists selected to play on various criteria. Winners go on to play at The Bamboozle. ONLY artists from the NJ, NY, PA area will be accepted.

The Online portion, which is exclusive to Sonicbids, is accepting submissions from artists all over the world. Max Cruise Entertainment will review all entries and select at least four lucky winners who will be given a very coveted performance spot on the Bamboozle. The 4 reserved spots are broken up into regions of the United States: East, West, North and South.

The Bamboozle 2006, held in East Rutherford, NJ had 7 stages worth of artists and over 60,000 attendees. In total, 20 winners from last yearÂ’s Break Contest were given spots during the two-day festival, including one artist who performed on the main stage.

Genres accepted: rock, punk, pop, acoustic, post-hardcore, emo, indie, etc.
