The top 250 artists will gain direct access to the community of independent record labels who will participate in the Accelerator, and will be able to present their records for consideration for release on those labels. The top 250 will also be able to arrange speed networking meetings with label rep.s by purchasing a discount delegate pass.
Public votes influence whether or not artists make it through to the next round of the Accelerator, and artists are encouraged to ask their fans to vote for them.
Following the tallying of public votes as well as careful analysis of the records submitted by 30 partnered record labels participating in the conference, a final 50 artists are chosen to continue through to the final stage of the Accelerator.
This final group of artists is referred to as the LMC Final 50.
