Hard Rock Rising enters global phase
Ireland's winner Powderhorse need your help.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 10 Apr 2012
Now that the many rounds of exciting live music competition in Dublin's Hard Rock Cafe have come to an end, winning band Powderhorse are set to compete with acts from across the world. The grand prize? A trip to London to perform at the 2012 Hard Rock Calling Festivl in Hyde Park, headlined by Bruce Springsteen.
As of now, each local winner (coming from all over Europe, America, Australia, Africa and the Far East) is listed on Hard Rock apps, allowing you to listen, download and vote for your artist of choice. The ten bands who receive the most votes by April 24 will go on to a Judging Round, where the likes of Steve Van Zandt of the E Street Band and Fyfe Dangerfield of Guillemots will select the top three winners.
With some home support, Dublin's Powderhorse might just be there. Go to www.facebook.com/hardrockcafedublin for all the details.
