Attention all Musicians
Broadcast Your Song • Earn Cash Winnings
Entry is Free
Please send us a link to your best live performance of an original song, and broadcast to thousands of viewers in a two week battle of the bands bracket challenge.
In each matchup, two bands compete for paid votes, with 50% of the $$$ going to the winner and 25% going to the runner up. You win even if you lose.
Grand Prize winner(s) from the Championship Bracket will have the opportunity to be paid $5000 or more to perform at a future concert sponsored by mySongbird.
Timetable. All artists will have two weeks to gather and upload a live performance of one original song. Choose your bracket and click the SIGN-UP TODAY link below to submit your video. Open submissions begin on 8/1/2020 at 9 am PDT and ends on 8/28/2020 at Midnight PDT.
Duration: 5 minutes max per song. What kind of songs are we looking for? Original songs only, no cover songs. You must be the writer of your song submission. mySongbird loves original music and we want to broadcast your unique talents to the musical community and to the world. That is one of our main missions. So pick your best song that will move your audience!
What kind of videos are accepted? All videos must be of you performing your song—we want to see people, not graphics. Story-line music videos are not accepted. You may insert credits at the beginning/end of your video but it must be of a musical performance of your song. Multi-cam or group live stream performances are acceptable. Backing Tracks are ok to use.
Who will see my video and vote on it? Subscribers will rate your submission based on the strength of your song and the musical talent/creativity of your video performance. These factors include vocal or instrument talent, lyrical content, and how tight your solo, duo, or band performs together. So after you submit, get out there and rally your fan base to vote on your performance.
Must be 18 yrs or older to enter.
Contact confirmation with a link for you and your band. All Artists must provide a correct contact email or info link to enter the contest and receive prizes and rewards. The artist may choose to add an info tag at the beginning or end of the video submission. 10 seconds maximum.
Audio Quality. Great sound goes a long way! Direct output from an audio mixer is preferred but not necessary. The subscriber will be rating your submission based on audio quality, so make sure it’s clear and audible.
Please keep it clean, people. Inappropriate or explicit material will be considered, but keep in mind our overall audience.
Thank you for your video submission, and good luck!
