Public votes will be casted in the form of “Likes” and comments, so the more activity your mix has the higher your mix will rise above. Having a high amount of activity on your mix will attract our attention, but it does NOT guarantee a win. The top 10 mixes for each category (Commercial vs. Underground) will be reviewed by the PYRO music experts and then sent to the venues respected music directors for approval, but the decision now rests with PYRO from here on out. TIP: It is wise to share your mixtape on all socials and ask friends and family to cast their votes by both liking AND commenting on your mixtapes for support! Double TIP: Fill out the tracklisting Time Stamps for you mix to emerge more frequently on PYRO when other users search specific songs or artists that may be in your mix) – this gives you more plays!
