FLEMINGTON, Nj., June 14 /Christian Newswire/ -- Revelation Generation is giving local bands the chance to perform alongside an all-star musical lineup at this year's much anticipated day-long Christian music festival scheduled for Labor Day weekend. The first ever RevGen Breakout, to be held at the Safe Haven Café in Somers Point, NJ, is an outdoor battle of the bands competition. The winning band will be given a coveted opportunity to share the stage with chart-topping artists and other breakthrough bands at Revelation Generation, September 1, 2007 from 11 AM to 10 PM at Revelation Farms, Frenchtown, NJ. The current concert lineup includes musical performances by Newsboys, Jars of Clay, Brian Littrell, Nicole C. Mullen, Grits, Building 429, Phil Keaggy, MxPx, Skillet, Emery, Norma Jean, The Almost, and Falling Up.

On Saturday, July 14th the RevGen Breakout competition will begin at noon, rain or shine. Bands interested in competing can download an application form on www.revelationgeneration.org. Accepted bands will then be judged on their song samples posted on their band MySpace pages. Ten finalists will be invited to the final live competition at Safe Haven Café, where a panel of judges – to include a radio DJ and reps from Safe Haven and Revelation Generation – will select the winner.

"This event is something we've always wanted to incorporate into the festival. The overwhelming amount of interest from local bands spurred us to finally make it happen. Including the local community always adds to the spirit of the festival. This is an exceptional opportunity for local bands to perform on a professional sound stage along with top notch artists," said Sean Grom, Grassroots Marketing Coordinator for Revelation Generation. "We're also excited about partnering with the Safe Haven Café for the competition. They have a great facility and a large fan base of their own which will surely turn RevGen Breakout into an event to remember."

The winning band will perform on one of two state-of-the-art stages at Revelation Generation 2007, and receive a radio interview with 90.5 WXGN and several other stations, as well as inclusion in various concert promotions.
