In 2010, DJ Amen kicked off the Bay Area Freshmen 10 with a class featuring artists such as iamsu!, Roach Gigz, Jay Ant, and more. Now, 4 years later the Bay Area Freshmen 10 has become a pillar of the Bay Area music scene, putting a spotlight on undiscovered artists who have since risen to stardom like Sage The Gemini, Kreayshawn, Loverance and G-Eazy. Although it has been an amazing outlet for local artists, this year we’re retiring the Bay Area Freshmen 10 name for good. And for the 5th and final year, we searched for the next 10 artists who have the potential to represent the Bay Area on a national level!
But because it’s 2014, and the last ever Bay Area Freshmen 10, we had to make it even more epic – so watch the 14 members of the 2014 #BAF10 Class perform LIVE atThe New Parish January 22nd, 2015! Special guest performers TBA!
