Bon Iver Announces Remix Contest with Indaba

By Jessica Wunsch

Grammy award winning artist Bon Iver has announced the “Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project,” where he will ask fans to remix his tracks. A contest will be hosted for each song Bon Iver releases from his ten tracks, and the remix entries will be up for public vote through FlashFWD Award-winning Indaba Music’s social contest platform, promoted via Spotify. When the voting results are in, Bon Iver will personally make the final decision as to which remixes are chosen as the best for each of his tracks. Those ten remixes will then be assembled as a complete album and released exclusively on Spotify. First the first time, Bon Iver and his fans will be curating together the best reworkings of the “steminal” Bon Iver.

Starting today, fans can participate in the contest by following these instructions:

1. Create a free membership at Indaba Music

2. Select a song(s) and download the stems

3. Participants will have from 8/02 to 8/30 to complete their remixes and upload them for consideration.

4. Voting begins on 8/30 through Bon Iver, Spotify, and Indaba Music‘s websites and social networks via Bon Iver’s page on Facebook (one vote per account).

5. Winners will be announced around the third week of September, each earning a spot for their remix on the official Bon Iver, Bon Iver: Stems Project remix album and a $1,000 cash prize courtesy of Spotify.
