After battling it out with several of the area’s top bands at Hard Rock Cafe Bali, Superman Is Dead is now one step closer to winning the chance for a spot on the bill at the 2012 Hard Rock Calling Music Festival to be held in London’s Hyde Park with headlining performances by Bruce Springsteen, The E Street Band and Paul Simon.

Superman Is Dead – a legendary Bali band that has recently returned from a U.S. tour, will be pitted against 85 other Hard Rock Cafe local winners from across the globe in a process that will see the competitors narrowed down to the top ten bands worldwide via voting on Hard Rock Facebook Pages.

Voting Begins April 9, 2012 at 10:00 am EST in the U.S.A. (11:00 pm Bali time on April 8th). Fans are able to vote and download free tracks performed by the bands of their choice via Hard Rock Bali’s Facebook page.

Once the global voting is completed and the top 10 are chosen, a panel of celebrity judges and music industry professionals, including Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band, John Gourley, The Man, Scott Hutchison of Frightened Rabbit, Fyfe Dangerfield of Guillemots, Live Nation Vice President of Promotions Toby Leighton-Pope and Hard Rock International Chief Marketing Officer John Galloway will face the tough job of selecting the top three winners.

The first-place winner will be flown to London for the ultimate rock star treatment that includes a spot on the bill at Hard Rock Calling 2012. Second and third prizewinners will receive US$5,000 and US$2,500, respectively. Winners will also receive IT tools to help boost each band’s Facebook promotional campaign.
