MNspin now open for musician submissions

Minnesota musicians, join established acts and rising stars on MNspin, the local music streaming and download platform from your library. MNspin connects music lovers with our local scene, and Minnesota creators with new audiences.

Submit your music

Minnesota musicians and bands of all genres are invited to submit one track or song from an album or EP, produced in the last five years, for consideration by March 24. A panel of local music experts and library staff will review all submissions. Selected artists will be invited to upload the rest of their albums. MNspin artists will sign a license agreement and receive $200.

For full submission details and consideration criteria, see the MNspin FAQ.
