Mayhem: a juried competition & music festival for Oakland based musicians, presented by Awaken Cafe & Oaktown Indie Mayhem (formerly Oaktown Music Festival).

Nominations for Mayhem 2014 are now open through the end of September. Take a look at how the contest works, then nominate your favorite songs and music videos by Oakland musicians. You may pick one in each category. The 15 most nominated tracks in each category + 10 producers' picks will become finalists. In early October, our esteemed jury will pick the winners which we will announce on October 20th. The winners will play at the Mayhem Festival at Awaken Cafe on November 14th and 15th! 

Thank you for supporting Oakland music!
