Welcome to the Party!

You’ve just found the home of the Hampden Idol competition, taking place at Hampdenfest on September 14, 2013. It’s the zip code where all the action resides! The only thing missing is you.

Wait, what IS Hampden Idol?

It’s probably the most insane, anything goes karaoke competition that you can imagine. We launch rockets. We have people in costumes. We sometimes even sing real good. Don’t believe the hype? Here’s proof.

Rules. We Got Them.

If you would like to compete to win in Hampden Idol, you must

  • Be able to bring an amazing karaoke act (yes, we’ll have your lyrics) to the stage in front of an adoring crowd. You don’t have to sing well, but you do have to entertain! The more unique the better.
  • Be able to attend Hampdenfest in Baltimore, Maryland on September 14, 2013.
  • Be 18 years or older.
  • Have a valid e-mail address.

You are probably wondering to yourself, “how can I compete with my amazing karaoke charisma and talent to decimate the competition and win all the fabulous prizes?” If you’d like to compete, there are not one, not two, but three ways to get into the competition.
