And we're open to EVERY genre, so show us what you got!
NECTAR is created for the sole love & drive to connect with other (signed or unsigned) artists & to help them succeed in the pursuit of a musical career. Here at NECTAR we know what it's like to have music inside of you, but not knowing where to go to find the right resources or who or where to turn to for mentorship on how to get your brand out there. Thankfully, nowadays we have social media. While there are various music conferences that have industry professionals come in to share knowledge & judge competitions, attending such an event could cost hundreds of dollars. At NECTAR we're not trying to make a profit on quantity, we are genuinely interested in planning events for quality talents. We are all about bringing aspiring artists like you together for the love of the craft and sharing an experience where we watch each other's potential grow. We hope all you aspiring artists and musicians will join us & help grace the stage!
YOU WILL RECEIVE AS NEEDED:
Allowance for travel expenses (airport/transportation)
Paid expenses for lodging/parking day of event
Quick practice/set up check (schedule will be provided)
ATTENTION: Artists, this is absolutely the time for you to do you on 100 & turn the upcoming stage into your own space! We want you to light it up and share your talent with an audience of fans & potential new followers alike, who came here to check out sounds they may have never even heard before!
HOW TO SUBMIT/ENTER: It's as easy as posting a link to your material or by #nectarecep on Instagram! If we see a video we really like we'll may add it to our pages to promote the video along with the upcoming event. The final file for your material is required so we can post to our Youtube channel to start the voting process . The number of likes your video receives will play into the final selection process, so be sure to tell all your friends! The use of your material does not guarantee one of the limited spots the night of the show (but it means we enjoyed it & felt it was worth sharing)! Please note, base on the number of submissions we receive we may not be able to post, respond, or even view all of the material. But by you posting your links via social media (our Facebook/Instagram accounts) you're already gaining more exposure along with us, as we continue to grow. Always keep in mind that even if you are not one of the limited select acts to perform for this event, this experience is designed for unsigned, aspiring artists like you and it would be a shame to miss out on learning from their experiences & forming new friends or collaborations at the after party! This is an environment where everyone wins!
NECTAR will be selecting the top 6 (SIX) of submissions to perform . Each performance will have 12 minutes to showcase their talent and share their story/history with the audience. We recommend you have 3 songs prepared should you receive notification of being selected for one of the slots and that you treat this as a performance! This is more than simply getting on a stage and running through a set. Engage with your audience and draw them into your vibe. The competition style of this event is solely designed to provide artists/bands with real world performance experience, but there won't be any judges. NECTAR reserves the right to pick whomever we'd like to invest in at the time, based on overall performance. Winner(s) will be awarded funds to go towards the official studio production of one of their songs, that we hope to help get played on the radio!
IMPORTANT NOTE: While we respect the expression of every genre & artist we will not allow excessive profanity in any of the material we select. We are attracted to lyrically talented individuals who can make their expressions with minimal use of profanity, so in the event of radio play every other word isn't (blank). We challenge prospective talents, especially in the rap and hip/hop genre to expand your creative vocabulary, lyrically and make minimum use of profanity. Again, we're looking for quality in the performances we select and we're providing a stage at little to no cost to you.
