    JanSport Launching Battle of the Bands Competition - 50 bands were selected from 800 entries and now you can vote on the winner

    Backpack company JanSport® has launched its biggest contest of the year -- its online Battle of the Bands competition. Beginning with over 800 entries, 50 of the best-of-the-best bands have been hand-picked by a panel of judges from JanSport and now the brand is putting the hard decision-making in the hands of voters.

    Now through December 20 at 11:59 PM. EST, JanSport invites music fans to visit this site once a day to cast a vote for their favorite band for the chance-of-a-lifetime opportunity to play the Sonicbids Official SXSW party, presented by JanSport, this March 2011 in Austin, TX. Beyond having the chance to play at SXSW, the winning band will receive a JanSport luggage set and will have their travel expenses covered by JanSport.

    After this round of voting closes on December 20, the top 10 vote-getters will become finalists, but only one band will be selected to become the JanSport Battle of the Bands Grand Prize The winner will be announced in late January 2011.

    The winning band will have the opportunity to share the stage with some of the biggest names in music and play in front of thousands of fans, press and industry representatives at the Sonicbids Official SXSW party.
