Want to play KahBang Festival? After booking over 30 Sonicbids artists this year, KahBang has opened up 1 final slot for a Sonicbids artist – but this time they’re letting the fans get involved through Facebook voting. Submissions are FREE for all artists, courtesy of KahBang and Sonicbids.


After the entry period ends, all eligible bands will have a song (choose your best track to enter) included on the official KahBang or BUST contest page on KahBang’s Facebook page from June 29, 2012 through July 13, 2012. Your song will be promoted to thousands of visitors and the 10 artists with the most votes on Facebook will move on to the final judging round, where one band will be selected by KahBang’s music supervisors.


  • A performance slot at the KahBang Music Festival in Bangor, ME. Join artists like Bassnectar, Deftones, Wale, Reptar, Bad Rabbits and more. Click here to see the full lineup.

  • You play music... good music ;)

  • You have to have a Sonicbids account.

  • You and everyone in your band is from one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia.

  • A few other items, so make sure you've read the rules & regulations

  • Please note: If anyone in your band is 17 years of age or younger (18 or younger if you're from Alabama), you'll have to get written consent from a parent or guardian to move on to the judging round. Just a heads-up for later -- we didn't write the law, but we have to follow it.
