This September, Open Eyes Productions will be hosting an event to raise awareness and funds for the leading human rights organization in the world: Amnesty International. Located at a premiere New York City venue, the event will have major media coverage and an expected sold out crowd. Open Hearts will unite the masses to speak out against the most corrupt and suppressive regimes of the world that violate basic mandates of human rights.

Open Eyes Productions is looking for 2- 3 bands based in the NYC area who are using their music as a driving force to express their opinions and have their voices heard over the noise. Artists influenced and inspired by the likes of John Lennon, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd, are what Open Eyes are looking for. At least 1 Sonicbids artist will be selected for this event.

Genres accepted include rock, folk, alternative, world, pop, hip-hop, funk, and electronic.

New York City will be the second stop of what is a year long, International tour headlined by long time Amnesty supporters and ground breaking World rock group Blurred Vision. After NYC, the tour rolls over to Vancouver, Canada, and then on to a month long stretch of dates in Europe's major cities.

Open Eyes productions has been operating since 2006 and has been partners with Amnesty International for 3 years. They have won awards, gathered over 5000 members worldwide, and will now reunite with Amnesty to present an event both necessary and opportunistic for bands ready to take their music to the next level.
