City Slang: OurStage offers bands the chance to play Warped



Top digital music destination for unsigned bands is offering bands the chance to play the Warped Tour, which hits the Palace of Auburn Hills on June 6.

One new band will be taken out to play all 22 dates of the tour, while 22 more bands will be selected to play at their own local Warped show.

That means that there could be two new Detroit bands playing the Detroit Warped show.

According to the release, “Fans will be asked to rank the competing artists in order of their preference and will determine the up-and-coming musical acts that will get the chance to showcase their talent on one tour date or a set of twenty-two tour dates. One artist will travel from city to city in supreme style on a private tour bus provided by OurStage. Twenty-two additional bands will also get the chance to showcase their talent on the Stage at the one Warped Tour stop closest to them.”


Passionate music enthusiasts will be able to log on to from March 15th through April 30th to determine who moves on to play at the Stage at this year’s Warped Tour.  Five fans will also receive two coveted tickets to hear the latest and greatest music at the 2012 Warped Tour stop nearest to their hometown.
