Make your music matter! More than just a Tour, a Movement!

The artists and athletes of the eXtreme Tour are banding together 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 our time, much of the industry behind the 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. Through a free all day music and eXtreme Sports Festival, featuring live performances by many of today's popular cutting edge musicians, the eXtreme Tour will present a proposal of change. A change sparked by the passion and talent of 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. Through cutting edge punk, metal, hip-hop, hardcore, and rock and roll music, these artists will issue a challenge to all those attending to embrace that same hope as well.

The eXtreme Tour is looking for up to four Sonicbids artists to join the tour for the August dates of the Heartland leg of the tour. Selected artists will receive travel, lodging and possibly a stipend. Genres accepted include rock, punk, indie rock, etc. Music must be positive! No profanity or derogative lyrics.
