BMI’s ‘Road to Bonnaroo’ Returns for 2014

BMI-logo’s ‘Road to Bonnaroo’ 2014 brings Nashville’s indie bands and music fans together for the sixth consecutive year to select three homegrown artists ready to represent the city’s bustling music scene on a national stage. Three spots are up for grabs this year, and the 8 off 8th showcases on February 3 (lineup listed above), March 3, and April 7 will decide who earns the coveted spots at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in June. Last year’s winners include: Ranch Ghost, Alanna Royale, and Richie.

RTB 2014 will follow the rules established in previous years: As the live-action litmus test, at least eight bands will perform three-song sets during each installment of the series. To select the evening’s top contender, an industry panel comprised of local music journalists, bloggers, and 8 off 8th hosts will contribute one half of the verdict, while fan votes through onsite ballots determine the other half.

BMI’s involvement underscores the organization’s vital role as an early career counselor and support system for aspiring songwriters and bands. As an initial point of contact for burgeoning , bmi serves as a fundamental bridge, connecting promising talent with industry decision-makers, as well as invaluable opportunities, including performance slots on stages at SXSW, the Austin City Limits , Lollapalooza, the Hangout , the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and more.

The RTB 2014 is sponsored by BMI, the Mercy Lounge, The High Watt, The Nashville Scene and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Follow this year’s competition on Twitter: #Rd2Bonnaroo
