UnHeard Radio was created by independent artists and is still run by independent artists. They understand that most Battle of the Bands are a popularity contest- this one is not. While you will likely need to have some fans, you don't need to pack the house in order to win. There will be a 3 judge panel which will pay attention to original sound, stage presence, and overal show. This will count for 60% of the voting process. The other 40% of the process will be based on crowd voting. There will be voting booths setup where each fan can vote for their favorite artist/group. There is a system to catch multiple voters, so do not encourage this dishonest act. Audio and video of the of battle will be streamed over the internet with online voting for artists that are not from the area.

The lineup depends on how many tickets the artist/group sells. The artist/group with the most ticket sales by 2:00 P.M. of the show date will be designated the headliner and go on last. The artist/group with the 2nd most ticket sales will be 2nd to last to play, and so on. Door sales do not count torward lineup selection.

Participating artists will be provided with an online ticketing system where they can instruct their fans to purchase tickets. The company operating the ticket system is Ticketleap.com.
