Guerrilla Music announces open call for performers for Nifty Awards (NFT) afterparty event

This year’s Guerrilla Music virtual reality event debuts on Friday, April 23rd as the official after party of the Nifty Awards 2021 (NFT) and we want you to perform in our venue. In the Guerrilla Music virtual reality venue, we’ll be premiering pre-recorded, exclusive performances by artists from around the globe. Our Color the Blockchain segment will be live during the show with interviews from NFT artists.

Plus, each performers video submission will become an NFT with which the artist will receive 80% of the total sale price. We want to encourage musicians, dancers, and producers to reach out to us to be part of this exciting event. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 28th. Artists can choose one of three dates for a conference call where you will be shown how to get a crypto wallet and you will be advised on the event.

Now, what’s an NFT? How does a virtual reality event work? Why should you get involved?

An NFT (which stands for Non-fungible token) is art or music, in this case, that is given a digital contract through a process called minting. It enables the creator of the piece to sell it on the blockchain for cryptocurrency at any price they set. The digital contract is like the DNA of the NFT so the creator’s information will always be attached to it. To mint your art or music you need a crypto wallet which is free and easy to acquire.

NFTs have recently made headlines on mainstream media, as a video clip of LeBron James dunking sold for $208K USD and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey is auctioning off the platform’s very first tweets. Bidding has already passed $2.5 million. Toronto artist and visionary Mizo’s most recent Audio NFT sale went for 1.5 ETH – almost $3,000 CAD at the time of sale.

A virtual reality event is held in an interactive world somewhat like Fortnite or Minecraft. Guerrilla Music will collect performances from artists around the world and broadcast them, like a concert, on a large screen in the venue. The venue visitor just needs a computer, VR glasses aren’t necessary but can be used for a fully-immersive virtual experience. The visitor would follow a free link and appear in avatar form in a virtual world where they can walk around and enjoy the show.

This was the future, now it’s the present. Cryptocurrency is digital money that is being accepted almost everywhere. Artists are finally catching on and making millions of dollars by selling art and music on the blockchain. As pioneers in the NFT game, Guerrilla Music’s focus is to onboard artists and teach them how to be self-sufficient in this incredibly lucrative world.

This season is empowered by HipHopCanada, and other surprise sponsors which will be announced closer to the date of the event. Companies who want to sponsor the season can reach out to [email protected].

The Nifty Awards 2021 will celebrate the achievements of NFT’s released between January 2020 and December 2020.
