BandLab partners with NME for Get Featured competition

David Murphy

Social music creation platform BandLab has partnered with NME to launch BandLab and NME present: Get Featured. The campaign offers up-and-coming artists the chance to garner valuable publicity across NME’s platforms.

To take part, artists need to upload their own original music via BandLab Opportunities before 31 December. NME Radar’s editorial team will review all entries, before four winners will be chosen.

The winners will receive a BandLab-supported publication feature and accompanying photoshoot in NME;, 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 emerging musicians through its free-to-use DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software and social network. It has continued to offer a host of features and tools for over 50m creators to stay the course of their artistic path, connect with fans, and grow their audience.
