Miss our monthly contests on BandLab? Great news! They’re back and bigger than ever. Elevate your game with BandLab Levels – a new series of challenges to take your creativity to new heights, stack some massive prizes, and amplify your music to the next level.

Step up to a prize pool that’s off the charts – starting with USD 2,000 in the first challenge! These challenges are a golden opportunity to elevate your skills, expand your fan base, and connect with creators and potential collaborators. Plus, you might catch the attention of some industry heavyweights along the way. 

What’s BandLab Levels?

BandLab Levels was designed in light of the brilliant talent that we see on our platform every day. Instead of smaller monthly contests, we’re focusing on fewer, more impactful challenges across the year that match up to your music-making prowess. This means every contest that comes your way will offer bigger prizes and more intense competition – pushing you to unleash your full potential, take your skills to the next level, and be rewarded.

Perhaps one of the biggest changes is the substantial increase in prize money. With BandLab Levels, you’ll have the opportunity to compete for a much larger prize pool. For the first challenge, the grand prize winner walks away with a significant cash reward of USD 1,000 – double the amount offered in previous contests. Runners-up will also win up to USD 500.
