To all our amazing creators based in India and around the world, here’s a contest you won’t want to miss! 👀  Stand to win $500 when you submit your best Bollywood-inspired track for our #BollyBeats contest. Here are all the details you need to start crafting some exuberant tunes!  

What’s the #BollyBeats contest about? 

What would Bollywood films be without a cocktail of rhythmic, catchy songs? 🎶 Inspired by the richness and diversity of Bollywood music, we’ve curated some genre-traversing sounds by talented DJs and producers from India – and we want to hear your unique take on them.

How to participate?

  • Head to BandLab Sounds and browse through sound packs by some of India’s most well-known producers. They’ve drawn inspiration from Bollywood and Indian music to produce some fresh beats for your experimentation!
  • Create an original track on BandLab Studio using sounds from any Bollywood sound pack. Have fun and let your creativity shine through.
  • Post your track on BandLab with both #BollyBeats and #BandLab hashtags.

It’s that simple. The challenge runs from 1 to 26 November 2022.

What’s up for grabs?

One lucky winner will receive US$500 and 3 runners-up will walk away with US$100 each! Winners will be picked based on creativity, originality, and musicality.

The winning entries will be selected by DJ Suketu and DJ Angel from 27 to 29 November 2022.

#BollyBeats masterclass

To wrap up, we’re hosting an exclusive #BollyBeats Masterclass on BandLab Live (30 November 2022, 8:30 – 9:30 PM IST) where the winning entries will be revealed.
