UFO Hefeweizen, Harpoon’s UnFiltered Offering and the North East’s original wheat beer, has set out to find the North East’s Best UnFiltered Band. For the last 10 years people have left mainstream beers behind to discover UFO Hefeweizen. Now UFO wants to return the favor and help discover the Northeast’s Best UnFiltered Sound. After all, the only thing better than beer, is music and beer.

All bands who submit will receive a certificate for a case of UFO Hefeweizen, to be redeemed at the Harpoon Brewery in Boston, MA or Windsor, VT. All entrants must be 21 or over. Certain restrictions apply.

The winner of the competition receives:

  • A year’s supply of UFO Hefeweizen
  • A paid performance slot at Harpoon Summer Session 2009 ($1,000 plus accommodations and hospitality)
  • A full day of studio time at MixOne studios in Boston
  • Publicity through UFO’s promotional network
  • A one-year feature on UFO’s website
  • A free mp3 download offered on UFO’s website
  • Special, branded promotions with your band info on items like UFO coasters, stickers, and much more.
  • A UFO gift pack including t-shirts, hats, glasses, and much more.

    Here’s how it works:
    A team of UFO music specialists will review all entries and select ten finalists. Each finalist will be featured for one month on UFO’s website as a UFO “Band of the month”, and will receive a UFO gift package and (hold onto your hat) a one-year supply of UFO Hefeweizen (there aren’t really any losers here, when you think about it).

    So who selects the one grand prize winner? The public. Fans will vote through UFO's website for the one they think is the Northeast’s Best UnFiltered Band.

    Here’s who should enter:

    UFO accepts all genres, but before submitting, please ask yourself if your band’s music, image and vibe would be a good fit for the UFO brand. Also, all bands MUST be actively playing shows in New England, they should all be from the east coast, and all band members must be 21+.

    About UFO

    UFO is a German style of beer called Hefeweizen. Unlike most beer styles, hefeweizens are unfiltered, so the yeast remains in the beer. With UFO, there’s nothing held back, nothing filtered away.
