Rock The Republic is unlike any other music festival, it is music fused with magic, spoken word mantras over break beats and dancers who help you remember that collision courses can be beautiful. Like graffiti murals of tricked out guitar solos, it's so much more than a festival, it's a spectacle of sight & sound. In 2011, RTR had over 2,500 fans of Rock, Hip Hop and Slam Poetry, this year they are looking to double and expand on that attendance. Music lovers from all over the state of Texas will take the journey to this rare and eclectic affair. RTR features over 10 stages at venues in downtown Bryan, a cultural district quickly becoming recognized for its music, culture and eclectic environment.

They are looking for artists of all genres, poets, comedians, visual artists, entertainers and other exotic and varied performances from Texas and the surrounding areas (or on tour through the area if from from further away) but will consider all submissons. They have reserved spots for 15 Sonicbids artists but in past years they've selected over twice that amount.

Selected artists receive:

  • Top 5 submissions will be paid spots upon negotiation, rest of the spots will be unpaid

  • 100% of merchandise sales

  • Free food and drinks at the festival

Rock The Republic is based in Bryan-College Station making it the ideal location for this Texas sized event. Bryan-College Station is the home of Texas A&M University, the nation's 6th largest university with over 50,000 students; and is less than one hour from Sam Houston State University, about 100 miles of Austin (the live music capital of the world) and Houston, Texas (the nation's 4th largest city). RTR is targeted towards a new generation of music fans looking for a more intimate and personal entertainment experience. RTR 2012 promises to be the best and largest eclectic music event in the Bryan-College Station area in years, once again, unlike any other live performances experience in Texas.
