The Break Contest is the official battle of the bands for The Bamboozle and The Bamboozle Left festivals. Created by Max Cruise Entertainment in New Jersey, The Break Contest serves as a pedestal to new and upcoming bands and gives them a chance to win coveted spots on each festival.

The Break Contest for the Bamaboozle Left is held over several days during the months of August and September in California. A panel of judges will critique the artists selected to play on various criteria. Winners go on to play at The Bamboozle Left.

ONLY artists from California will be accepted.

The Bamboozle was held earlier this year in East Rutherford, NJ and held over 60,000 attendees. In total, 20 Break winners were given spots during the two-day festival including one slot on the main stage. For Bamboozle Left we are looking to follow the same path and create a great opportunity for local bands to show off their talents.

The inaugural Bamboozle Left will be held in Pomona, CA on October 14-15, 2006 and will feature great headliners like Dashboard Confessional, +44 (Travis and Mark from Blink 182), Brand New, Jack’s Mannequin, 30 Seconds to Mars, HelloGoodbye, Sugarcult, Murs, The Bled and Thrice. Sponsors include Max Cruise, Goldenvoice, Coachella, Ducat King, ASI Cal Poly Pomona and KROQ.

Genres we’re looking for include rock, punk, pop, acoustic, post hardcore, emo, indie, etc. Selected artists will be expected to and must be able to sell tickets to the event.
