How to Win:
It’s vital that all acts draw at least 15-50 people to this event and you should aim to get around 50+ votes to win. The contest is based on a voting structure and audience enthusiasm so it is important that you get your friends out to support. In the case of close calls, our BTM rep will also be a judge.
Post the event link on friends’, fans’ and your own Facebook walls. Email the link to any mailing lists that you might have and spread the word via word of mouth or feel free to create your own Facebook event.
Making handbills and flyers always goes a long way. Most importantly, talk it up and promote so you can have a successful night. Bring out those dedicated fans and you can advance to the Finals.
On the night of the performance, artists will meet up with the BTM rep and give the rep money for all of the tickets you sold at $10 per ticket. Please make sure to have all tickets and money organized before you get to the venue. You will then get paid your cash from tickets sold at that time from the BTM rep. The rep will also ask you a few questions about your music project, as it is our goal to learn about all the performers we work with.
We aim to help your music project grow with our event so we are able to offer special discounts for services to help your image, which include:
$60 HD VIDEO for your full set (1 camera), $110 2 camera shoot (gives multiple angles and texture)

Artist is held fully responsible for the monetary value of these tickets and not having the tickets or money for the tickets at settlement time is means for disqualification of your time slot and performance and a charge up to $10 per ticket on your credit card. Simply put, don’t lose your tickets.
Your tickets will be printed by Bridging The Music and shipped to the address you provide us during sign up. You will provide Bridging The Music with $6.50 for shipping, handling and printing of your tickets to be paid via credit or debit card.
Your outcome on ticket sales and musical performance will determine if we are able to book you for future shows and if we are able to give you an increase in pay for the future. In other words, make it a goal to sell all 50 tickets, or at least give it 100% effort!
If you live outside the city limits of where the event is taking place then you will be required to have a reasonable amount of ticket sales guaranteed. Please understand, the event needs to be sustainable.
If your band cancels or doesn’t show up there is a $50 cancellation fee that will be applied to your credit or debit card. If you are late for check in, your set could be subject to cancellation and a $50 fee imposed. If you have agreed to a ticket minimum, any cancellation would be subject to the $50 cancellation fee plus the amount of the ticket minimum which was agreed to.
Radius Clause: It is not permitted for the artist to play any other concert event within 30 miles of the venue in the 10 days preceding the confirmed Bridging The Music date or you are subject to the cancellation fee.
Thanks so much once again for sharing your talent with all of us and GOOD LUCK!!!
