BTS record label plans Vegas talent search, plus a new welcome video

The company behind BTS City is seeking the next generation of pop stars.

And they’re looking in Las Vegas.

Hybe, the South Korean record label and entertainment conglomerate that’s helped guide BTS to superstardom, will hold its first-ever multi-label auditions in Las Vegas on the dates of BTS’ concerts at Allegiant Stadium.

Taking place April 8-9 and 15-16, the talent search will be for all genders aged 11-19 and will focus on singing, rapping and dancing — you don’t have to be great at all three, just nail at least one.

A number of Hybe’s label subsidiaries will participate, including Big Hit Music, Hybe x Geffen, Belift Labs, HybeLabels Japan, Source Music, Pledis Entertainment and KOZ Entertainment.

The goal is to recruit new trainees for potential inclusion in future Hybe groups.

Candidates can pre-register at https://bit.ly/hybelasvegas.

Registration ends on April 4.
