What is Red Bull Bedroom Jam?

Red Bull Bedroom Jam, now in its sixth year, is an opportunity for young bands to build their career in music, step by step.

From the bands that enter:

  • 15 will play a show recorded in their Bedroom broadcast to the world at
  • 8 will continue to the festival tour heading to Slam Dunk, Download, Sonisphere and Hevy
  • 3 will have a high end music video made for them
  • 1 will be crowned champion and walk away with recording time in the state of the art Red Bull Studios London and a support slot on a major act’s UK tour

How Do I Enter?

To enter, all you have to do is fill in a profile for your band and upload your video to Simple!

Your band must all be over 14 years old and 1 member must be under 21. (Please see T&C’s for further details).

How Do I Become Champion?

STAGE 1: The Buzz Chart

Once you have uploaded your video, it will be monitored and ranked on the Buzz Chart. This clever chart is designed to measure the amount of buzz bands are creating across the web, monitoring Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and many other sources of online activity. The more you get people engaging with and talking about your band across the internet, the higher you will rise in the chart!

STAGE 2: The Live Shows (15)

Every week, for 15 weeks, we take the band at the top of the Buzz Chart and give them the chance to perform from their bedroom; this is then broadcast over the internet the following week. Once the bands have made it to the live shows, they move into the Festival Buzz Chart.

STAGE 3: The Festivals

8 bands from the 15 live shows will go through to the next round to play at 4 of the best UK festivals: Slamdunk (26-27th May), Download (8-10th June), Sonisphere (6-8th July) and Hevy Festival (3rd-6th August).

The 1st band that progresses on to the Festivals is determined by the Festival Buzz Chart and the remaining 7 bands are selected by a panel of 3 expert judges:

  • Andy Copping

    Andy has been booking Download festival since its inception in 2003.

  • Beckie Sugden

    Beckie is an agent specialising in rock and metal music. Her currents clients include Architects, My Passion and Devil Sold His Soul.

  • Ben Patashnik

    Ben is the editor of Rock Sound magazine.

STAGE 4: The LIVE Final

Following the Festivals, three final bands will be selected by the panel of experts to take part in the live final, broadcast from Red Bull Studios. The champion, decided by public vote, will receive two weeks recording time in the Red Bull Studio as well as the chance to join a headline act on tour.

As a new feature to the project this year, the three finalists will also have music videos produced for them.
