Dubai, UAE March 23rd, 2015 – Let the battle for Barcelona begin! Hard Rock Cafe Dubai called on its local rockers to compete for the chance to perform in Barcelona through Hard Rock Rising, the world’s largest and most far-reaching battle of the bands competition. Starting on April 1st, 2015, Hard Rock Cafe Dubai will host a series of live battle events where undiscovered local talent will vie for the chance to move on to the regional phase of the competition and participate in a final live showdown in Barcelona. Each city winner will receive a cash prize of $1,000 and one lucky Grand Prize winner will win a spot on the main stage at the first-ever Hard Rock Rising Barcelona global music festival this summer!

Hard Rock Cafe Dubai will host several preliminary battle events where local bands Carl & the Reda Mafia, When the Night Comes, Xalbaje, Up the Ante and Daisygrim will be judged by a panel of local industry experts representing Done Events, Red Bull, last year’s Dubai winners, The Boxtones, and radio personality Mark Lloyd. One winner will be chosen from each round to compete in the final local battle, where judges will select one band to represent Hard Rock Cafe Dubai as they move on to compete against other winners from Hard Rock locations around the world.

Once the local Dubai winning band is chosen, a panel of international music industry professionals will then review all city winners to determine the regional winners. Each of the regional winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Barcelona, Spain to perform at Hard Rock Cafe Barcelona for the final live battle event. The overall winner will perform on the main-stage at the Hard Rock Rising Barcelona global music festival!
