High School Nation: Giving students the chance to make music.

We’re excited to announce a very special partnership with High School Nation. BandLab is proud to welcome students from 60 cities across America to join our platform, as we host the High School Nation 2017 Song Competition.

What’s the deal?

High School Nation is the USA’s largest secondary school touring music festival – and last week the team kicked off their 2017 60-city Festival Tour.  At each stop, High School Nation will take over football stadiums on each of the campuses for two-hour concerts and events that celebrate the arts in public schools. They’ll also be donating musical instruments and recording equipment so that more students can make music.

A match made in heaven.

BandLab’s all about creating a world connected by music – so when we heard about High School Nation, we couldn’t wait to board the tour bus! We’re so excited to be part of inspiring and empowering the next generation of creators to make music.

Some of our guests.

To kick off the start of the tour, some of the music industry’s hottest young rising stars took to the stage to join in on the fun – with platinum selling rock band Plain White T’s headlining.

Ready to hear what they’ve been up to?

To listen to a collection of songs from the incredible HSN line up, head over to the High School Nation profile. And take note – these ones could be future chart toppers!
