The Extreme Tour takes care of travel expenses like housing and food. Selected artists will be compensated for their participation with a travel stipend. Additionally, in addition for tour consideration, your EPK will also be reviewed for potential airplay on the syndicated National Radio Show the tour is partnering with.

Submissions in most genres are accepted. The Extreme Tour is a tour with a mission. Punk. Hardcore. Metal. Rock and roll. Hip-hop. Some of the best music being produced today has been assembled to bring you a radical, politically incorrect message in a format that will rock your world! And this revolutionary movement is called The Extreme Tour!

The Artists and Volunteers of the Extreme Tour are coming to bring a rallying cry of freedom. Freedom from ignorance. Freedom from seclusion. Freedom from violence. Freedom from the destructive messages, themes, and agendas of a machine bent on inhuman profit.

In our time, much of the Industry behind the Rock and Roll Culture has advocated a costly and ruinous message of self-gratification by glorifying hatred, drug use, alcoholism, and promiscuity. Because the Industry has found this destructive message to be profitable, as a whole, it has ignored the great social cost.

The Extreme Tour Movement marks the beginning of a change in that agenda.

The Extreme Tour will bring an alternative voice to your community this summer. Through a free all day music and Extreme Sports Festival, featuring live performances by many of today's popular cutting edge musicians, the Extreme Tour will present a proposal of change. This change that starts with the artists and performers involved in this movement.

The participants in the Extreme Tour discard the destructive messages and lifestyles advocated and glorified by Rock and Roll's past, and embrace a new message of hope. Through cutting edge punk, metal, hip-hop, hardcore, and rock and roll music, these artists will issue a challenge to all those attending to embrace that same hope as well.

Selected artists will receive 100 % of their merchandise sales, food, lodging and possibly a stipend. Most Genres accepted, including spoken word and comedy, etc. Music must be positive! No profanity or derogative lyrics.
