PROMOTION GUIDELINES

RPM Fest is the result of nearly a year's worth of planning and work, and we hope that our bands will share in that effort to make this festival a success.  Here's some ways you can help out:

  • post or share RPM Fest news and announcements on social media
  • hand out RPM Fest handbills at any shows you're playing or attending
  • hand out RPM Fest handbills outside of national touring shows
  • post RPM Fest flyers around your city
  • volunteer at the festival or help us recruit volunteers
  • ask your favorite local business to advertise, sponsor, or vend at the fest

PROMO PACKS

We will be assembling out Promo Packs in early June containing 100 handbills, 20 posters, and two complimentary tickets. Please hang up the posters around your area (see “Postering Locations”) and distribute the handbills at any shows you play or attend (see “Shows to Handbill”). You can give the tickets to fans or guests, or you can sell them and keep the money.

Please let us know if you will be at any Promotorhead shows or in the Western Mass area to pick up your pack, or if we should mail them to the address we have on file (from the Band Confirmation Form).

    FLYERING LOCATIONS

    If you live or work near any of these towns, please hang up RPM Fest flyers in record stores, music instrument shops, food take out places, bulletin boards, and any other locations with high foot traffic.  Bring scotch tape and push pins, and always ask the person behind the counter before hanging a flyer.
