Battle of the Bands

Registration for the 2019 battle will be coming soon!

Each year RiseFest receives many requests from bands all over the country, to play at our festival.  We are honored that bands would seek us out to be an extension of their ministries; however, in order to accommodate as many artists as possible, we’ve had to develop a procedure for choosing those that play at RiseFest.

RiseFest is partnering with Rawkzilla’s American Battle to provide bands an opportunity to play at the festival through the Rawkzilla Showcase.

We are looking for great bands with great ministry hearts!  Our main focus as a ministry is Jesus and sharing the message of Hope that comes from knowing Him as Savior. We seek for bands that not only can play great music but who also have this heart to share Christ in their circles of influence.

The Rawkzilla Showcase is for any band, signed or not signed.  All you have to do is fill out the registration form!

The competition is being held online, one lucky band will advance to play live at RiseFest on main stage!  The winner will be chosen by a combination of both fan votes and judges decision.

The winner of the Rawkzilla Showcase will win:

-A slot on the MAIN stage and merch table at this year’s festival

-The opportunity to advance to the Christian Festival Association’s National Talent Search*

*The CFA national winner is also awarded stage time at all participating CFA festivals for the following year.

If you feel you have the passion and drive to win a chance to play at festivals throughout the country, not to mention play on the MAIN stage at RiseFest then you’ll want to register here! Will you be our next winner?
