BandLab and NME Presents “Get Featured” Music Initiative for Aspiring Artist

BandLab, the worldwide social music platform for creators, has collaborated with NME to launch BandLab and NME present: Get Featured, a new global music initiative for rising artists. Partnering with NME gives emerging and independent singer-songwriters, rappers, producers and bands alike a platform to get heard by their global audience and expand both their networks and online presence.

Artists of all genres are being encouraged to upload their own original music via BandLab Opportunities by December 31, 2022. NME Radar’s editorial team will review all entries before four winners will be chosen.

The winners will receive a unique package of opportunities from NME to continue their development as an artist. This will include a BandLab-supported publication feature and accompanying photoshoot, placement on NME’s New Bangers Spotify Playlist for four weeks, inclusion in the NME newsletter, and extensive support across NME’s social media channels.

This is an ongoing opportunity that will see NME spotlight a total of four creators throughout 2023, and will also encourage artists to also submit their music directly for festival bookings, film and TV sync opportunities, and brand deals.

Since it was established in 2015, BandLab has supported and uplifted emerging musicians through its free-to-use DAW software and social network. They have continued to offer a whole host of features and tools for over 50 million creators to stay the course of their artistic path, connect with fans, and grow their audience.

With BandLab Opportunities, artists may get a chance to play at festivals, get their music heard by A&R at indie and major labels, get featured on some of the world’s best music publications, and much more. To get started, artists simply pick an opportunity that they are interested in and submit their music or EPK on BandLab’s Opportunity page.
