SellaBand has announced a deal with US firm ArenaWorks Entertainment that will give SellaBand’s artists the chance to play at 90 gigs in the US next year, as part of the ArenaFest 2009 series.ArenaFest isn’t just about music – its events will include sports, gaming, dating and competitions. But each event will now feature two of the artists on SellaBand, performing live. Bands from North America and Europe can sign up at a dedicated section on SellaBand’s website.However, to get to the second round, bands have to either raise $10,000 in funding from SellaBand users, sign up 200 ‘Believers’ on the site, or achieve the most votes in each week. “ArenaFest is a groundbreaking concept and fits perfectly in the philosophy of SellaBand,” says CEO Johan Vosmeijer. “On SellaBand, fans can find funding, as well as, world wide distribution for their music. The only missing link of the concept was the live element. ArenaFest is the perfect answer to that.”
