Attention electronic music artists, producers, DJs or whatever you call yourselves, do you wanna open for Pretty Lights at Riverfest Amphitheatre on Sept. 26? All you have to do is win Spin Off: Battle for the River.
Five artists will square off for a panel of judges on Sept. 1 at Revolution, with each one playing a 20-minute set that'll be assessed for originality, crowd response and presentation. It's open to pretty much any genre of electronic music, so if you've been itching to see what the crowd thinks of your dubstep-inflected grime-trance or your acid jungle/glitchstep/moombahton hybrid, here's your chance.
Submission deadline is Aug. 23 and the five semifinalists will be announced the next day. Enter right here. We'll need you to upload at least three tracks.
The Spin-Off starts at 9 p.m. and it's free for those 21 and older, $5 for ages 18-20.
You can get tickets to the Pretty Lights show here or by calling 800-745-3000.
