Captain Plugins presents the Music Innovation 2020 contest. This is an exciting opportunity to create a new style of music, win amazing prizes from some of the best companies in music production and have your music heard by the industry’s hottest producers, DJs and engineers.

To enter, all you have to do is create an original track that combines together elements from at least two different musical styles.
