Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz signs up to judge unsigned bands

Bassist running rule over Hard Rock Calling hopefuls

Pete Wentz has found another way to spend his time outside of side-project The Black Cards while Fall Out Boy are on haitus – by becoming a battle of the bands judge.

The bassist will judge bands competing for the chance to play Hard Rock Calling festival, which takes place in London‘s Hyde Park on June 24-26. Heats are taking place in Hard Rock Cafes worldwide.

For the UK heat Starsailor’s James Walsh will also be on the judging panel. See Hardrock.com for more information.

Bon Jovi are set to play a headline slot at the Hyde Park event.
