MTV2 to Present First Annual 'All That Rocks,' A User-Generated Celebration of Everything That Matters to the MTV2 Audience

Winners to Be Determined by MTV2 Audience at allthatrocks.mtv2.com Through Online Voting and Viewer Submitted Video Uploads Via Partnership with IFILM 'All That Rocks' Premieres on MTV2 on Sunday, July 30th at 9 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, June 20 -- MTV2 announced today the first-ever "All That Rocks," a user-generated celebration dictated by the tastes of MTV2 viewers. "All That Rocks" is the first show of its kind to recognize the emerging "Do It Yourself" generation obsessed with technology and pop culture with an attitude influenced only by what rocks their world. Hosted by Bam Margera, "All That Rocks" is set to air on MTV2 on Sunday, July 30th at 9 PM ET/PT and will feature some of today's hottest, up and coming artists including Lil Wayne, Flyleaf, and a special performance by 30 Seconds to Mars filmed at NYC's CBGB's.

"MTV2's first annual All That Rocks allows us to give our audience a chance to be front and center by honoring everything they think is hot right now -- from the music and bands to the video games and gadgets they love," stated David Cohn, GM, MTV2. "The show is an all access pass to what truly matters to our audience -- driven by them, for them -- saluting everything that they think rocks."

"All That Rocks" gives the MTV2 viewers an opportunity to truly take their 'DIY' attitude to another level. Through a partnership with IFILM, in which they are providing the video upload functionality for MTV2, visitors to allthatrocks.mtv2.com will be able to vote and upload "shout outs," videos of themselves endorsing and supporting their favorite "All That Rocks" nominees, and may eventually make their way on-air into promos as well as the show. In addition, Virgin Mobile users will be able to vote for their favorite "All That Rocks" nominees through the *MTV area on their phones. Viewers will also be able to check out MTV Overdrive closer to the "All That Rocks" airdate and check out the show on-demand, as well as check out exclusive bonus performances from Flyleaf, Lil Wayne and 30 Seconds to Mars. Viewers also have a hand in how the big night rolls out on-air as audience members will be given video cameras to help capture the entire event for television.
