The Untz Challenge XI: Turn Your Dreams into a Reality
It's the time of year at TheUntz.com when our thoughts turn to the summer festival season and The Untz Challenge. Once again, we are giving two rising stars a life-changing opportunity.
Our prize package includes sets at the best summer music festivals taking place across the United States—and this year, we're partnered with the absolute best. The two winners of The Untz Challenge XI will be playing at FIVE major music festivals across a four month span.
Our two winning acts will hit Summer Camp Music Festival (May 21-25 — Chillicothe, IL), The Untz Festival (May 29-31 — Mariposa, CA), SONIC BLOOM (June 18-21 — Spanish Peaks Country, CO), Electric Forest (June 25-29 — Rothbury, MI), and Imagine Music Festival (September 18-20 — Hampton, GA).
Beginning February 24th and continuing until March 16th, The Untz will accept submissions for the competition via the process outlined below.
A total of 2 slots will be given away to the winners of this contest. Both winners will be chosen by the staff of TheUntz.com, and will have the opportunity to perform at the same dates along the run. Our staff is made up of impartial judges who bring a wide array of tastes to the table, so no genre will be overlooked. Now this competition is purely about the quality of the submission, so it doesn't matter if you have 10 fans or 10,000, if your song is brilliant, you have a real chance of winning.
