The C-Tribe MusicVerses Competition is a unique global event designed for solo artists, bands, and singers, signed or unsigned, looking for an opportunity to feature their talent on a global stage. The goal of C-Tribe MusicVerses Competition is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band, singer, or solo artist…a newcomer or veteran…raw or polished – the “gem” that needs to be discovered. C-Tribe Music Competition is looking for the total package. Due to the nature of the Competition receiving the grand prize to perform at the C-Tribe Music Festival on November 13th, we are looking for high-energy and music moving artists who can also rock a show.

There is a screening committee that listens to all entries and selects the group of Entrants which are then sent to be voted on social media. The judges then select the winners from the performing finalist  during the C-Tribe Music Festival on November 13th, 2021. The screening process is carefully and respectfully implemented with the goal of selecting the best songs to send on to the Competition.


C-Tribe is putting together a group of music industry professionals and music executives in different genres who have all agreed to “mentor” the finalists. From this group, 1-3 mentors will be selected and put in direct contact with the finalists via email, video conference, or telephone. The method of contact may vary from mentor to mentor, depending on scheduling. C-Tribe cannot guarantee a particular mentor’s availability, so the group of mentors includes more than three individuals in order to accommodate any unforeseen changes in labels, personnel, or other circumstances preventing a mentor from participation. Mentoring must be completed by the end of the calendar year of the competition unless a mentor’s schedule does not permit. Therefore, if the Grand Prize winner and mentor opt to meet in person, it must be done by the end of the calendar year; otherwise, the mentoring will be done by telephone or video conference.
