Sonicbids Advertising Extravaganza

Posted by:  Sonicbids Marketing Department


This gig is not currently accepting applications. We think you might like these similar gigs.


Go around the world with Sonicbids. Not physically, of course. Just your picture and info. We’re busy designing advertising and giveaway collateral for the upcoming 2008-2009 event season, and we want to feature 3-4 artists prominently. What does this mean? Let us break it down: Bands selected for this project will have their faces, names and EPK URLs distributed liberally at the biggest and most important festivals, conferences and events in music for 9-12 months. These events include (but are by no means limited to): SXSW, MIDEM, CMJ Music Fest, Canadian Music Week, Eurosonic, WOMEX, Popkomm, Bumbershoot, and lots more.

Sound good? It gets better. Selected bands will also receive 12 months of Supersonic membership for free.

We haven’t quite figured out where you’ll be pictured – it could be on postcards, banners, posters, flyers, or who knows what else. But you’ll be put into the hands of industry movers and shakers across the globe.

We do have a few requirements, but don’t worry; they’re pretty easy. Eligible bands are those who:

• Are gigging consistently through Sonicbids (this includes licensing deals and any other gig landed through Sonicbids)

• Have been members of Sonicbids long enough to know and understand how to use the service

• Have EPKs that are 90% or more complete

• Have a nice collection of quality photos for our designers to choose from (click here for a helpful Lounge article on getting good band photos)

We know these guidelines are a little vague. We designed them that way. We want you to tell us what your success looks like, and why it’s perfect for our marketing collateral. Drop us a line. Let us know. We’re standing by.
