Submit your song for “Play Us Your Hits”

For the first time we deliver a unique opportunity to registered delegates of Reeperbahn Festival: Have your music heard by a panel of leading A&R executives from both the major and independent label sector. The listening session „Play Your Hits“ is created in cooperation with the respected global artist discovery and development firm, A&R Worldwide, as well as its annual music and media event, MUSEXPO Los Angeles.

These fantastic A&R executives will give their personal opinion on the titles presented:
Would you like to have your music included for the panel Play Us Your Hits? To maximize time and efficiency in the panel room, we are pre-collecting music from registered delegates. Please note that only one song submission from each registered delegate of Reeperbahn Festival 2019 will be accepted for the session to ensure all delegates have a fair chance to have their music heard. From the submissions, there will be tracks included to fill the allotted time for the panel. The panelists will randomly select artists submitted and the music will be played for the entire panel room to hear. The goal is to include as many tracks as possible within the panel to be heard by the A&R executives participating.

To ensure quality file types and ease of collection please send one track as a download-enabled Dropbox link to Tyler Polzin, be sure that he has clearance to download. The deadline to submit tracks is 31 August 2019. Your submission should be clearly marked with the correct artist and song title.
