On Friday May 19th, the annual Battle of the Bands known as Hard Rock Rising begins once again at our beloved Hard Rock Cafe located inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. Four bands which were selected via popular vote and wildcard entries will each take turns wowing both judges and guests alike in mini 30-minute concerts on the Hard Rock Cafe stage.
As part of this year’s Hard Rock Rising competition, artists and musical acts at more than 125 Hard Rock Cafes, Hotels, and Casinos across the globe will drop a beat or sing their hearts out for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In partnership with ReverbNation, interested musicians registered at HardRockRising.com to participate in the global battle. As part of the competition, all finalists will receive $1,000 USD, a Fender instruments prize pack, and a 1,000 CD/DVD pack of the artist’s latest recording or video from Bison Disc. The grand prize winner will play during halftime at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
