24 bands. 9 nights. 1 crown.
A time-honored live music tradition, an institution, and the World Series of Boston Rock. Founded by Boston’s radio behemoth, 104.1 WBCN — The Rock of Boston, the first official Rumble took place in 1979 at the legendary RAT in Kenmore Square. The Neighborhoods won.
We continue in that spirit where bands have a great experience, gain new fans, and raise their profile in the city.
Boston Emissions is home to the Rumble. It is an annual event curated by Anngelle Wood, host of Boston Emissions. Bands who send music to, and receive airplay on, Boston Emissions will be considered.
