Previous Sonicbids artists selected by Platform One have performed in front of representatives from SPIN Magazine, Pitchfork Media, YahooMusic, ABC, NBC, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, 93XRT, Q101, WTMX and many other major media outlets.

With their unique and prolific style of music, Brooklyn-based MGMT are the voice of a new generation. The Grammy-nominated band burst onto the music scene in late 2007 with their critically-lauded debut, Oracular Spectacular. Crisscrossing the globe for two years on tour, MGMT brought their incredible live show to the masses and cemented themselves as festival favorites. They recently released their sophomore album, Congratulations, to more raves from fans and critics alike--debuting #2 on the Billboard charts. Associated Press said “MGMT sounds spectacular on sophomore disc,” while Reuters heralded the album as “timeless.”

What other artists say:

  • “We got to play with our heroes, Kings of Leon, because of Platform One & Sonicbids. It was an experience we will never forget and helped us get signed to a major label.” - The Jakes (Young the Giant)



  • "Working with Platform One & Sonicbids for the Dare 2 Dream benefit with Talib Kweli was phenomenal. Performing with other exceptional artists for a charitable event such as this has been one of the best shows that we've had the pleasure of playing." - The Primeridian, selected for Platform One's "Open for Talib Kweli" competition, May 2009



  • “To play with Gavin Rossdale was a huge step for Relief, in terms of dream chasing and professionalism. Being from Ireland, it has allowed us to break into America with a continued fan base in Chicago as a result. We hope to continue our work with Platform One and Sonicbids and also the chance to headline the Dare 2 Dream events in the not to distant future!" - Relief
