Converse Get Loud Competition

Converse Malaysia has recently launched an online campaign and music video competition across their social media platforms.

Keeping true to the spirit of rock n’ roll music which is in line with the global campaign of Sneakers Get Loud, Converse will be allowing the new talents to be heard throughout the nation on top of giving away up to RM20,000 in cash and prizes through the “How Loud Can You Get” video competition which requires bands and musicians alike to submit their videos to Converse which will be voted by the community.

The highest voted bands will be playing live at the Get Loud Tour Finale on October 6th.

The local rock scene is nothing but quiet these days with bands coming out of all around the country making it to international concerts and festivals.

None of these would’ve happened without the hard work and determination of the Malaysian rock community that kept it real and getting loud through the airwaves and rock shows.

This year, Converse Malaysia celebrates such talents by hosting a music series across 3 major cities in the Peninsular along with some well-known lineups in the rock scene.

The full list of dates and lineups are:

14 Sept 2013, Sky Terrace @ Penang Hill – Tres Empre, Maddthelin, Hello, Is This the Band?, Second Whisper, Sepatu 69 and Memoirs of Veronica

21 Sept 2013, Cheers Bar & Grill @ Danga Bay, Johor Bahru – Tres Empre, Maddthelin, Classmates, Priceless Stupid Box, Never Ending Threats and Medinee

6 Oct 2013, Laundry Bar@ The Curve, KL – Massacre Conspiracy, Subculture, Azure for Jane, The Padangs and special appearance from 3 Get Loud video contenstant finalists

Details about the “How Do You Get Loud” video competition can be found on Converse Malaysia Facebook Page and the competition runs from now until 30th September 2013.
