ALSO ANNOUNCED: THE DEAN'S LIST ON THE DEW TOUR AND A CHANCE FOR ARTISTS TO OPEN FOR GREYSON CHANCE'S HOMETOWN CONCERT
LOS ANGELES, July 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its launch only four months ago, WHOOZNXT has provided unprecedented opportunities and exposure for its members, solidifying the media network's position as the first and only of its kind. WHOOZNXT has rewarded musicians with opportunities that they may otherwise not have had, such as performances on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," The Dew Tour and the Vans Warped Tour.
The concept of the site is simple, artist friendly and free to register. Once an artist is signed up and they have linked to all of their social networks, they simply need to go ahead with their normal goals and responsibilities to build their social networking numbers. The technology behind WHOOZNXT will track the growth of an artist's followers, likes and viewers each month. The artists with the most growth become eligible for a multitude of prizes; from Facebook Ads to concerts to national television performances. Scott Igoe, Music Executive for "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" recently commented on WHOOZNXT, "I definitely think this is a movement in the right direction for new bands to get exposure in ways they never thought possible."
Nashville band, The Features will be the fourth band to earn a spot on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" via WHOOZNXT and will perform on Tuesday, July 26th at MIDNIGHT on ABC. This will be the group's first national television performance and is the same day as the release of their new album, Wilderness, on Kings of Leon's label, Serpents and Snakes/Bug Music, a venture with music publisher, Bug. Previous artists who have earned the opportunity are Asking Alexandria, I See Stars and Breathe Carolina.
A new partnership for WHOOZNXT is with The Dew Tour. Based on their social media growth over the last month, Boston based group, The Dean's List will be opening for Kid Cudi and The Cool Kids on July 23rd in Ocean City, MD. Additionally, WHOOZNXT will be rewarding opening slots for The Dew Tour stops in Portland and Salt Lake City.
Further proving the sites ability to support multiple genres of music, WHOOZNXT has just launched an opportunity for an artist to be the opening act for internet sensation Greyson Chance at his hometown concert in Oklahoma City on August 19th. The contest will run through August 8th and the artists with the most online growth will be presented to Greyson who is personally involved in the process, "I'm really excited about this contest with WHOOZNXT. I was discovered on the internet and it's really cool that I'm now able to help discover someone new online also! Good luck to everyone and I look forward to meeting the winner on August 19th!"
