October contest: #THEGREATBANDLABJAM

Thegreatbandlabjam

Tracklanta 2020 is done. As we get down to work listening through the thousands of entries and collaborating with the mentors to pick our final winners, we’ve got one last BandLab contest round up our sleeves for October.

Introducing #TheGreatBandLabJam – a special, quick-fire round for October, made for all the instrumentalists on BandLab. 

Join together with the band

We want to put together a compilation of your video jams into one BIG music video! It’ll be everywhere – on YouTube, social media and more. 

Start by forking the contest backing track above. Record a video of yourself jamming along the backing track. Get creative! Get your friends, family, pets involved too – have fun with it!

To produce a music video you can:

  1. Use our Video Mix on BandLab. Creating a music video with Video Mix lets you play back your BandLab project (in this case, the contest track) in the background while you record yourself jamming over it in real time. Learn how to use Video Mix here
  2. Use your own video capturing devices and editing software.

Entry Period: 13 October 2020 to 31 October 2020

The Prize

Stand a chance to be part of our compilation jam video!

We’ll be stitching together as many quality submissions as we can, and we’ll try our best to be as inclusive as possible. Because this round, it’s all about your music. 

How to submit

Step 1

Fork the contest backing track. Start recording your contest entry on the Mix Editor. During your recording, you may choose to capture your video at the same time.
