Getting Featured

WE OFFER 3 DIFFERENT FEATURES:

1. FREE FEATURES- We showcase and feature musicians from all over the world. Our free features are chosen randomly from tens to hundreds of thousands of videos once a day.

2. PAID FEATURES- Since the actual chances of being featured on our profile is very slim (you are competing with 100,000 + videos everyday), we offer paid features for individuals who are serious about getting exposure to their profile. Our paid features are limited and carefully curated in order to assure it meets our brand image and qualifications. For more information on our paid features, click here.

3. T-SHIRT AND PRODUCT RELATED FEATURES- We love featuring our Rockstar customers! Simply upload a photo/video of you wearing/repping our shirts or gear and add the appropriate hashtag for a chance to be featured. The specific hashtag for each product can be found in the product description of each product. Make sure you add the specific hashtag + #universityofrock in the picture/video!

EX: If you purchase our 80's grunge tee, you would hashtag #urock80sgrunge + #universityofrock in your picture/video.

*Note: If you are uploading a picture, please make sure you tag us in the actual photo in addition to the hashtags. This will guarantee that we see the picture in the tagged pictures section on our profile.
