Red Bull's bedroom Jam 2013 Competition was launched at The Workmans Club Dublin when a who's who of the Irish Music business stepped out to check out what's happening in the 2013 Competition, Last year’s winners "Walking on Cars” performed  live on the night as did Hudson Taylor.

Fledgling Irish bands (all members aged 17+, with one member aged under 25), can upload a video and from April 8th, the weekly Bedroom Jam Buzz Chart will reveal which of the country’s acts have been the most popular. By monitoring the amount of video views and activity on social networks they will move up or down the Buzz Chart. This is a battle of the bands that is not just about voting – it’s a complete social media experience

The overall winner will receive some slick new equipment and a private  session at Grouse Lodge studios . Three of the six weekly winners will get to play at some of Ireland’s biggest festivals this summer and all the winners will play in the final showcase show at Whelans, Dublin in late August.
