The Denton Rock Lottery picks 25 musicians, organizes them into five bands through a lottery the morning of the performance and sends them off to practice at different locations. The musicians have 12 hours to create a band name and come up with 3-5 songs, only one of which can be a cover song. The bands will return to Dan's Silverleaf that night and perform what they have created in front of a waiting audience.

The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are carefully selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. These are the confirmed participants in the Rock Lottery:
