The Tiny Desk Contest is back! Unsigned musicians: Enter the Contest by sending NPR Music a video of you playing an original song behind a desk by June 7 at midnight E.T. If you win, you'll play your very own Tiny Desk concert!
We want to amplify the music that comes from the Upper Great Lakes! If you have been a guest on The Local Spin, or are an interested unsigned musician, we highly encourage you to submit a video for the 2021 Tiny Desk Contest!
The Contest opens for entries Tuesday, May 11, at 10 a.m. ET and closes June 7, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Learn more, read the officials rules and submit your entry: npr.org/tinydeskcontest.
Look for updates on local submissions here on the Public Radio 90 website!
