Following open registration, entrants will receive a unique URL to share, encouraging their fans to vote online. The act who receives the largest number of online votes will become the wildcard “winner” for their local Hard Rock. The online voting period runs from Thursday, March 17 to Wednesday, March 23. Fans are able to vote for multiple artists located in any participating city.

The wildcard “winner” will be automatically eligible to participate in the Hard Rock Rising music showcase taking place on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, at the participating Hard Rock Cafe or Hotel location they selected when registering. Three additional acts for each location will be selected to perform by the local Hard Rock Cafe or Hotel team. One winner will be selected from each location by a panel of local industry judges.

A panel of international music industry professionals will then narrow the local cafe winners down to four regional finalists and one global grand prize winner. All will receive a professionally-produced music video that will be added regionally to the Hard Rock video system, a 1,000 count CD/DVD pack of their latest recording and video from Bison Disc, and a Fender Instruments prize pack. The grand prize winner will receive $50,000 USD, have their video added worldwide to the Hard Rock video system and get an all-expenses-paid trip to perform at Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza in September 2016.

Hard Rock Rising is hosted, in partnership with ReverbNation, the global leader in providing independent musicians with the tools to manage every aspect of their careers. ReverbNation’s unique platform and extensive community of more than 4 million artists in over 100 countries worldwide provides undiscovered artists with a chance to catapult their music careers and expose themselves to Hard Rock’s global audience.
