South Dakota Musicians!

NPR will be accepting your videos for the 2018 Tiny Desk Concert contest Tuesday, February 20, 2018 to Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 11:59 pm EST.

You or your entry may be featured on SDPB Radio's "Moment in Sound" and SDPB social media. The overall winner will be featured on NPR!

Here's how you enter:

  • Make a video of you or your band, performing one original song at a desk (any desk). We want to hear the music that shows us the best of what you've got.
  • Send it to NPR. We'll be open for submissions starting Feb. 20 until March 25

The winner of the contest will come to NPR headquarters in Washington, DC to play their very own Tiny Desk Concert. (We all teared up a bit during Tank and the Bangas' performance last year).

Then, the winner will come on a tour of the U.S. with NPR Music and our sponsor, Lagunitas Brewing Company.That's it! It's not a complicated process, though there are a few rules to read. We want to hear from anyone with a song to share (and a desk, too).
