Music Supervisor Pitch Session 2

The new Music Licensing Pitch Sessions offer all registrants and artists direct feedback from licensing, sync, and music supervision experts. They will offer you a glimpse at the viability of licensing your music for different genres of film, TV, commercials and more. You submit your song, tell us what you think it could be used in, and you'll receive honest feedback from our panel.

This year, we can accept digital submissions for these sessions. You must send a direct link to your hosted track (ie, Bandcamp, SoundCloud, etc.); DO NOT email attached MP3s! Links for Music Licensing Pitch Sessions can go to musicpitch@sxsw.com. Physical CDs will also be accepted at the door.

You must be present to have your music in the running to be heard!
