Since its inception, Discovery Project has given a voice to emerging artists and ignited the careers of countless budding producers. Discovery Project alumni have gone on to release music on the industry’s leading labels, to tour around the world, and to perform on the largest festival stages and most notable club venues.
Now for the first time ever, EDC Las Vegas, the Discovery Project, and EDMbiz are teaming up to host the second annual A&R Competition. This unique opportunity to showcase one’s production chops and selector skills will allow up-and-coming producers the chance to be critiqued by the Discovery Project team and influencers within the electronic music industry. Entrants will compete to win one grand prize, which includes a much-coveted performance slot at EDC Las Vegas 2016, passes to EDMbiz 2016, and more.
Winners will kick off EDC Week 2016—a full week’s worth of parties and events taking place June 13–20 across the Las Vegas Strip and leading up to this year’s EDC Las Vegas, which celebrates 20 years Under the Electric Sky—at EDMbiz. During the conference, winners will present in front of an esteemed panel of A&R representatives and industry tastemakers, the chance of a lifetime for any aspiring artists and producers.
To enter the competition, entrants must submit an original track and a 30-minute DJ mix. The competition this year will be fierce, so put on your game face. Make sure to act fast: The competition is open now and closes Sunday, April 24, at 11:59 pm PT. Note: This competition is open only to legal residents of the United States of America who are at least eighteen (18) years of age.
