Rock out and perform your music in front of a captivating and highly energetic market of 25,000+ influential teens and tweens through a completely untapped live entertainment performance space — summer camps!

This great opportunity to showcase your talent is in front of America's youth. This audience consists of the most influential tastemakers and spenders. You will have the chance to capture the hearts of teens and tweens – one of the more challenging demographics to reach – at the most musically influential time of their lives! Not to mention the fact that these tastemakers are also your best communicators! They will want to spread the word to their friends that they were part of the artist discovery process this summer at their camp.

Entering its fourth season, Camplified brings concert tours into prominent summer camps, featuring nationally touring acts from major and recognizable indie record labels. Camplified has reserved up to six performance dates for Sonicbids artists to participate on this summer’s tour.

This year’s tour will feature headliners from Warner Brothers Records, Capitol Records and Walt Disney Records and will reach approximately 35 camps from Maryland all the way to Maine and everywhere in between. Both the day camp and the overnight tours kick off on July 2nd ending on August 18th, 2006, with attendance ranging from 500-1,500 teens/tweens per performance. A secondary audience of 5,000, 17-25 year old staff counselors, are also eager to take part in the fun and enjoyment of some great rock and pop music.

You will also be able to sell your merchandise on-site at most of the dates, create a mailing list and future interaction with your new fan base while CAMPLIFIED takes care of the PROMOTION! Your responsibility is to show up, rock out and entertain!

Important facts to keep in mind:

  • All genres are being considered. Tour will consist of up to 4 performances by artists, during either afternoon or early evening hours
  • Minimum backline will be provided
  • Camplified is planning local radio promotions to publicize the artists as well as our sponsors
  • Please keep in mind that if you are selected you will be performing for kids and we therefore require that you have absolutely no explicit lyrics and that your music is appropriate for kids as young as 5 for the day camp tour and as young as 9 for the overnight camp tour. Your attire can and should be trendy but your t-shirts, hats, pants can not explicitly suggest a negative message to this audience
  • Artists are required to participate in autograph signings and other “meet and greet” events at each tour stop. Since the tour stops typically last up to a full day, artists are encouraged to participate in some of the activities with campers. Getting along with kids of all ages is a big plus as it generates future communication with your band and the kids
  • International artists are encouraged to apply with application assistance provided

Past Camplified performers include Lucy Woodward (Atlantic), Rose Falcon (Columbia), FeFe Dobson (Island/Def Jam), Skye Sweetnam (Capitol), Fifth Year Crush (Shoebox Records), Huckapoo (Disney), J-Me (Ripe Records), The Bloody Lovelies (Cheap Lullaby Records), Jillian Wheeler (Whiz Kidz Records), Katelyn Tarver (American Idol Junior Finalist) and Nikki Flores (Epic Records). The tour is sponsored by Scholastic, Fender, BMI and others.

Camplified supports the growth of the camping experience for those in need by providing a portion of all proceeds to charities including the Morry’s Foundation and Foundation for Jewish Camping.

The camps want us because we provide safe, fun, "star power" entertainment for their kids in an innovative manner. Top brands want us because we help them connect to teens/tweens in a way that goes above and beyond traditional methods. The labels want us because we help them break new acts with a lot of buzz by providing a one of a kind marketing vehicle. And now we’re opening up that opportunity to the indie world. We hope you can be there with us.

Selected bands will get a $50.00 stipend for gas and expenses per tour date - and food will be provided at all camp dates.

Also, selected bands will receive a section on the CAMPLIFIED website – co-branded with Sonicbids that will allow for BAND downloads and ringtones (bands will be compensated for this by revenue made on the site) with a link to band website. Selected artists are responsible for their own travel.
