Emerging Talent Sought for EDC


The sold-out Electric Daisy Carnival is looking to add to its lineup of talent for next month’s event.

Insomniac, which organizes the EDC, is promoting the development of emerging dance music talent through what it calls the Discovery Project for the June 21-23 festival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Beginning in 2012 in conjunction with the Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas, the Discovery Project has provided emerging electronic dance music talent with the opportunity to gain exposure by playing at one of Insomniac’s festivals. Winners for the EDC, Vegas competition will perform on June 21 and 22.

Up-and-coming DJs and producers should submit a their latest original track, as well as a 30-minute DJ mix that best represents their personal style and sound. Entrants must also fill out a mandatory entry form on the Discovery Project website. The competition is open to artists 18 and older.

Artists can upload their mix with the tag “Discovery Project: EDC Las Vegas” to MixCloud and the words “Discovery Project: EDC Las Vegas” somewhere in the title and must include competition artwork and an accurate track listing. Their original track can be submitted to the Insomniac Events SoundCloud drop box with the same title requirement.

Entrees must be received by11:59:59 p.m. PDT on June 2.

Judging for the contest will be done by a panel from the Discovery Project team and will focus on originality and technical ability. No amount of plays or favorites from fans is required. However, if two submissions receive equal scores from the Discovery Project judges, plays and favorites may play a role in the final selection. Participants are encouraged to promote their work through MixCloud, SoundCloud and personal social media platforms.

The competition is open globally; however, international winners will need to provide their own travel arrangements to reach the U.S. Insomniac will provide domestic flights only. Insomniac will also provide hotel accommodations for all winners (on the night of performance only).
