Bus To Show On-Board Artist Auditions 2014

May 10, 2014

Event Details

Bus To Show and New Basics Presents: The 2014 On-Board Artist Auditions.

Each year, BTS sends hundreds of buses to hundreds of shows with hundreds of on-board performances by DJs and Electronic Music Producers. We like to think of this as DJ Boot Camp, because if you can handle the adversity inherent in performing on a moving venue full of unruly partiers, then stationary venues will be absolute CAKE. Playing regularly throughout a season is also an enormously effective way of earning a following for your work. Many of the industry's most renowned artists have graced the BTS buses with their music, and we are committed to continuing this legacy.

Party Features

S C O R I N G :

+80% of your score will be determined by the judges. They will be assessing you based on a variety of criteria from production quality to track selection, to mixing, to performance charisma, to ability to deal with adversity and all the realities that come with playing a bus set.

+20% of your score will be based on attendance. There will be approximately 20 spots on the bus for your fans. (Yes. This part of it is a popularity contest. Get used to it :) It's the music business we're talking about here. Non-industry judges, will need to purchase a wrist-band....don't worry though, there'll be enough give aways to make up for the cost.
