The nomination period for Oakland Mayhem 2014 (called the Oaktown Music Festival last year) closes September 30, 2014! Winning Best of Oakland and a bunch of great prizes is only one little step away!

It only takes one nomination to be in the running; and as of right now, just a few more nominations by Justin Ancheta Band fans could snag us the People’s Choice Award!

In addition, the top 15 most nominated songs or videos along with 10 producers’ picks (for a total of 25 finalists in each category) will go to our all-star jury of local music professionals who will score each track, the highest scores become the winners.

This year, there is a category for everyone:

Oakland Only Categories:

  • Best in Show (highest jury score across all categories)
  • People’s Choice (most nominated song or video)
  • Best Song by an Oakland Band
  • Best Song by an Oakland Solo Artist
  • Best Music Video by an Oakland Band or Solo Artist
  • Best Song by an Oakland Band or Solo Artist Under 18
  • Greater Bay Area Category
