Now seeking band submissions for Studio-A-Rama

by melissa

UPDATE: Postmark deadline for Studio-A-Rama submissions has been extended to Friday, July 28.

Studio-A-Rama, WRUW's signature annual outdoor concert, is scheduled to take place in September. As always, the event will be free and open to the public. It's our way of helping to promote the local music scene, giving back to our listeners, and ending summer on a positive note!

Are you interested in playing on the Studio-A-Rama stage this summer?

This 25th annual event is a great opportunity for local and regional artists to showcase their talent and have their music heard. Eight or nine bands will be chosen to share the stage with a national headliner. Notable headliners from past years include Magnolia Electric Co., New Bomb Turks, Guided by Voices, and Birth. Band submissions are now being accepted. WRUW will review all submissions postmarked by July 20th from local and regional bands who wish to play and have not participated in the past 4 years. All types of music will be considered. If you've sent a submission in past years, but weren't chosen to play the event, we highly encourage you submit your stuff again for consideration this year.

Interested bands should send the following information, postmarked by July 28:
A sample of your music (3+ songs) in CD format
band line-up (full names please) and bio
website address (if applicable)
contact information (phone number and email address)
band photo (an electronic copy on CD or floppy disc & a hard copy is ideal)

Mail your submission to:
WRUW-FM Cleveland
Attention: Studio-A-Rama
11220 Bellflower Road
Cleveland, OH 44106

We are NOT accepting electronic press kit (EPK) submissions. However, if you have an EPK, you can mail us a CD with a web address for your EPK, and we'll be more than happy to review your bio and photos via the website. Mailing us a CD is still crucial, however.

Please note that all submitted material becomes the property of WRUW and cannot be returned. By submitting music, you are giving WRUW permission to play it on the air whether or not your band is chosen to play at Studio-A-Rama. By submitting a photo and/or website address, you are giving WRUW permission to use it for promotional purposes if your band is chosen to play at Studio-A-Rama.

If you have any questions, please send an email to studioarama@wruw.org.
