The new multi-platform television channel launching in October is looking for music fans between the ages of thirteen and twenty-five to join the network. In an Instagram video posted today, Combs asked candidates to submit 15-second audition tapes explaining why they are REVOLT.
"I need individuals that are fearless and speak the truth. Young talent. Fresh faces. Attitude," said Combs. "I want to empower the creators of this generation and show artists this is their channel."
Submissions can be uploaded to Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Vimeo, Facebook or YouTube but will not be accepted via email. In the video description, participants must use both #iamrevolt and another hashtag to describe their musical style, for example #alternative, #EDM, #hiphop.
