To all electronic music producers finishing up tracks or planning independent releases, you may want to hold off on dropping your best track until The Untz Challenge VIII wraps up on April 3. Two deserving winners of the challenge will score major summer festival slots to perform at Summer Camp, The Untz Festival, Sonic Bloom, Electric Forest, Arise, the Imagine Music Festival beginning this May and ending in September.
You can enter the challenge by uploading a previously unreleased track to Soundcloud by March 10 and filling out a form. According to the rules, the track must remain unreleased until April 3 when the competition voting ends. It also must be an original electronic production—not a remix, DJ mix or song by a live band. Do not use any copyrighted samples in the production.
Voting takes place March 22-April 3, and you cannot use voting incentives, raffles or bots to gain votes on penalty of disqualification. The popular vote will determine one winner, and TheUntz.com staff will choose the other.
Remember, submit by March 10, and you can bring the heat to all 6 of these summer festivals!
