NPR Music is bringing back their Tiny Desk contest, asking unknown bands and musicians all over the country to film themselves performing one song at a desk of their choice.
The contest will be sponsored for the second year by Lagunitas Brewing Company, and will secure a spot at the iconic performance space and a U.S. tour with NPR Music.
NPR Music has created a bigger prize package for the 2016 Contest winner, which includes a four-part event tour with stops at NPR's Ask Me Another program and at Lagunitas breweries in Petaluma, CA and Chicago, IL and a final stop in Portland, OR. A panel of musicians from the Tiny Desk roster -- Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and The Arcs, Lucius ladies Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, and soul artist Son Little -- will join Bob Boilen and All Song Considered co-host Robin Hilton in selecting one Contest winner, to be announced in March 2016.
Throughout the three-week submission period and afterwards, NPR Music will also feature select video entries on the Contest Tumblr, which already includes highlights from the 2015 Contest.
