Why Play On The Camplified Tour?
This is a great opportunity for artists to showcase in front of America's youth, an international college age staff, the most fanatic tastemakers and spenders. Artists will have the chance to capture the hearts of teens and tweens – one of the more challenging demographics to reach – at the most musically energizing time of their lives. Not to mention the fact that these taste makers are also their best communicators. They'll want to spread the word to their friends that they were part of the artist discovery process this summer at their camp.

Camplified brings concert tours into prominent summer camps, featuring nationally touring acts from major and recognizable indie record labels.

Camp audiences range from 300-500 per tour stop. Sponsors of the tour will work with Camplified to integrate artists into their music based programs. Past sponsors have been Gibson Guitars, HP Computers, Roland,, Nestle's Juicy Juice, Scholastic, YuGiOh Trading Cards, Cartoon Network, Samsung, TMobile, Monkey Brains, Little Brown Books, Penguin Book Publishing, and St. Martins.
