The Braveathon is our annual fundraising event. For 15 hours we are joined by 15 bands playing LIVE from our studios! We bring the best local bands to your ears, and hope that in return you can give us your support.

Brave New Radio also has several rare and unique items we raffle off throughout the day, including autographed posters, limited edition T-shirts, concert tickets, etc.

Our inaugural Braveathon in 2009 was a great success. Over the course of 15 hours, we were joined by Dead By Wednesday, Bern and the Brights, Tiger Scout, One Short Fall, The Eighth Sea and Jamie Gerard just to name a few.

For our second annual Braveathon, we teamed up with WPTV-6 to broadcast the Braveathon on radio and campus cable TV! The bands on our roster for 2010 were Waking Lights, Murph, Reinvent Me, Jersey Fresh, Exotic Aquatic, Exit She Calls, My Arcadia, Fantazma, My Eyes Fall Victim, Fall to the Queen, Van Damme and Flying at Hendon.

In 2011 we again collaborated with WPTV-6 and all proceeds went to WPSC and WPTV-6. Great thanks to Passing Planets, Reverse Order, Sexy Heroes, Hands on the Stereo, Viking Viking Viking, Escape Directors, Lipstick and Cigarettes, I Am Fighting, Legend of the Fall, Audio Insight, Clamfight and The Doomsday Prophecy for rocking out thes 2011 Braveathon!

On March 30, 2012 we added hip hop into our mix for the first time and it was great! Thanks to The Nico Blues, Sami Eldebs, John Todd Erwin, Standstill, Harsimus Cove, Feudalism, Any Time Today, Yes Virginia, Shout Out The Crowd, The Tonight Life, Sons of Paterson, Polo Moe and Vextion!

We can't wait until next year!
