Music League

Welcome to the Synthpop Fanatic Music League!

Join the League

Music League is a weekly contest that will challenge your knowledge of music, introduce you to new tunes, and spark your competitive spirit.

How Music League works

Every Monday morning at 10 am ET, I will announce a new category—something like remixes or sad songs. You have 3 days to submit one song in the category to the league. On Thursday, it will build a playlist of all the submitted songs.

Everyone who participates gets 5 points to distribute however you want to the songs in the playlist. You have until Monday to award your points. At that time, the league reveals which songs got the most points, and the next round begins.

Music League runs on Spotify so you need to have a Spotify account to play. Apologies if you don’t use Spotify. You can still listen to the Spotify playlists even if you’re participating in the league.

The games begin March 4. There will be 10 rounds. The player with the most points at the end will win a Synthpop Fanatic prize package.
