The Waka Winter Classic is Back on the Road

The Waka Winter Classic is back on the road and has started out the year with four HUGE shows! Excitement for Wakarusa 2012 is rampant all over the country, and the anticipation for summer festival season couldn’t be higher during these long winter months.  Thankfully we don’t have to wait for summer to experience a bit of festival life – the Waka Winter Classic Tour will bring the festival experience to you! At a total of seventeen stops, several bands who submitted through ReverbNation will compete in regional talent showcases for the chance to perform at Wakarusa 2012.

Want to compete at Waka Winter Classic? Submissions are still open in Tulsa, OK, New York City and Athens, GA!
