Red Bull Sound Select Presents Shows: Frequently Asked Questions
What is Red Bull Sound Select?
Red Bull Sound Select is a long-term initiative that celebrates
local music and the people that push it forward: hard working artists,
passionate fans, and tastemakers that shape scenes. It’s part
artist development program, part event series, part digital product, part
partner network, all working together to bring artists and fans closer
together to break music.
does it work?
We want to build something that’s valuable for both artists and
fans, brings them closer and helps them understand what gets the other’s
feet moving. For fans, this means providing a place where you can discover
emerging artists, get tickets to local shows and exclusive content based on
shows you’ve attended, bands you’ve listened to, tweeted about, and posted
images of on your social channels. Over time, we’ll show how your efforts are
helping make your favorite bands even bigger. We’ll also show artists which
fans are really making a difference so they can give those fans the
props they deserve.
What’s happens each month?
Each month, we host Red Bull Sound Select Presents nights in 14
cities around the US, Canada and New Zealand (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, Austin,
Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Denver, Portland, Toronto, Wellington
and Auckland). Each show is curated by local
music influencers and boasts local artists and a headlining act.
What’s a curator?
A curator is someone who has their pulse on the music scene in the
14 cities listed above. They come from a variety of backgrounds but they all
know a thing or two about finding and supporting great new artists. At each
show, we ask curators to handpick the talent for the bill. You can check out
the full list of curators at https://www.redbullsoundselect.com/curators.
How do I get into the show?
Each month we post new show details at win.gs/events. Select the
event you’d like to attend and click “RSVP” to get a special $3 ticket to the
show. If you haven’t already, you’ll be prompted to join Red Bull Sound
Select through Facebook connect or Twitter. Once you’re in, you’ll be on the
list at the door for that $3 ticket.
Remember, the $3 ticket RSVP is first come first served, so get to
the show early so you have no issues getting in the door.

easier for fans to create and fill out their Red Bull Sound Select account.
Presently, only people who sync with Facebook or Twitter can register an
account. However, anyone who likes good music can hang out on the site, listen
and discover new artists. Most Red Bull Sound Select events are open to the
public at full price; just check the Terms and Conditions link on the event
page for details.
What if I don't have a Facebook/Twitter or don’t
want to use it?
No worries. Feel free to spend time on the
site, check out the bands and show them support how you can. Remember,
presently you can’t RSVP to an event, request tickets to a show or create an
account without Facebook or Twitter. We use Facebook and Twitter for all of
these things to make creating accounts easier and so we can better customize
your music experience.
I want to RSVP but I don’t have a Facebook or
Twitter account. What now?
Most Red Bull Sound Select Presents shows are
open to the public at full price. So if you don’t have a Facebook or Twitter account,
you can still attend without an RSVP. Just make sure to check the terms and

What do I do if I have problems?
If you have life problems, call a friend. If you have any problems
with the website, or want to tell us about your epic night, let us know by
clicking the support button on the home page. This isn’t just
some marketing website – we want to work with you to create something cool
that keeps going. Give us your feedback, let us know what to do next, and
be a part of building this with us.
I like to write about bands / take photos of bands / make videos
of bands, can I share it with the RBSS community?
Yes please! We know that those who can’t rock create content of
rockers (or at least that’s how we got our jobs). If you’re on the go, tag your
pics with #SoundSelect so we can see what you’re up to. If you’ve got something
you want to share with the community, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m in a band / I rep a band, how can I get on
we work with curators to help select and book artists each month. If you’re
interested in taking part, we suggest checking out one of the Presents nights
to get a feel for the scene. If you’re still into it, reach one of the curators
in your city about getting involved.
