Artist Submissions and Voting: –Between June 24th and July 21st, upload your favorite original track or mix and rally your voters. Hopefully others will agree with your choice and help propel your case. Fans can vote once per day, every day, if they want to make a life-changing difference for one live act and one DJ. Each e-mail address will be allotted one vote per day, so encourage your supporters to vote early and often! VOTING and Submissions END 11:29pm CST on July 21st!

Finalists Chosen: On July 23rd, the votes will be tallied and out of the top 30 vote getters, 4 djs and 4 live acts will be chosen and announced to round out our 8 Finalists. The Finalists will be chosen based on 1/3 stylistic fit for NCMF, 1/3 skill as artists and musicians, and 1/3 originality of artists.

Battle Royale for the Winners: These Finalists will each play a short set on Monday July 28th for organizers and their fans at Concord Music Hall (2047 N. Milwaukee, Chicago, IL Judges will pick one Live Act and one DJ to join the main stage lineup at this year’s fest. Winners will be picked based on 1/3 Crowd Response (so make sure to get your fans out and cheering LOUD!), 1/3 stylistic fit for NCMF, and 1/3 live musicianship and stage performance. He, Her, or they will be showered with praise and good fortune.

If you or your friends create multiple accounts (or try to use bots to vote for you), it’s cheating, and we will disqualify those votes. So please, don’t waste your time or ours cheating.
