LPU SESSION: Rock, Record, Work out


#1

Hello everybody, I’m here just to speak about this project “LPU SESSION, rock, record, work out”. My problem (really not only mine) it’s that I don’t think is the right way to offer only to American fans this opportunity to share music and win a flight + hotel.

I’m not here to dispute about this, I think LPU HQ & co make a really great job to this fan base and it’s not one of the most easy things that a man can do.

Anyways, I think that musical icons could be in every single part of the world, and not only in US. This is not right. I mean, everyone has to be equal to everyone.

I know it’s not easy to make this contest an opportunity to ALL the fans around THE WORLD, because pay a flight and a hotel to LA it’s very difficult and expensive, so I think they only give this opportunity to US fans cause it’s easier.

What do you think about it?
If your answer is negative, please tell me if you’d like to try to make it WORLDWIDE.

Thanks for reading, and please reply.

From what I understand there is actually a lot of legal issues with doing contests and prizing world wide. International travel would be a huge headache most likely because of Visa/Immigration issues. I agree it isn’t fair to the rest of the community but these type of laws are pretty strict and well that really isn’t the bands fault. I doubt paying for the flight tickets/hotel is the real issue its the immigration stuff that probably prevents them from extending this prize to the whole world.

This is actually the first contest after a long while that it’s US only. As they’ve said a billion times before, it’s simply not up to them to decide who is eligible for the contests. It’s up to management as there are legal issues involved.

And since this has happened many times before (the complaining about a contest being US only), I’d just say to sit back and enjoy it, see what those taking part have to offer. Besides no one said you can’t vote so you do have a say on it in the end :wink:

Yes guys, I know everything of what you’ve said.
I know it’s difficult make a worldwide travel, and @EvoOba, I know that is the management, in fact I didn’t say that Linkin Park were wrong, absolutely. :wink:


#5

Even me, living in Canada, can’t even participate to that contest, so I’m even more pissed than you are hahaha


#6

This is what it’s called “bad luck” .-. I’m so sorry for you!


#7

It could very well be expected. But Canada is also excluded? Geesh…


#8

i think the opportunity should be equal.every one which have the ability should have chance to Join this contest.even though we are not american,but we’ve created songs.


#9

I’d really love to see a contest like this one for non-artistic people lol. I don’t make music, or do graphics or art. Lots of talented people out there throughout the world who can. To the Americans who are lucky enough to participate, I wish you all good luck!

this is a great oportunity, so cool they decided to do this :slight_smile: but yeah it’s sad, i can’t enter cuz it’s only for the USA :confused:

I think all of us should have the opportunity to participate, independently from where you are. We all are fans, and we would love to have a time with the band and work with them.
And I guess the immigration issues are easy to be solved, I think it wouldn’t be a big problem. It would generate a bit more of work, but I know that who manage all this could handle it.

Man, hardly anybody’s posting about this! Here’s my entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHm1YzED5Rs

I understand how most of you from different countries feel because this is a huge and great opportunity. To get to go in the studio with Linkin Park is huge. Hopefully there will be more contests soon that will allow everyone to participate. If anyone is interested check out my song that I entered for the contest, Thanks!

I agree about the contest not being open world wide. I’m sure it has to do with legality reasons and whatnot. I am however excited to hear all of the entries, and what people are doing. If you guys are interested, please listen to my song.
Here’s the link

Also, have a listen to this guys song above me. Pretty good stuff. Good Luck to everyone. RGK
Thanks

I love Linkin Park and try to get in as many contests of theirs as I can … this one is soooo different than the others I’ve entered in the past. I think this one will be a lot better! I wish I knew how many people entered this one?
