Welcome to Mastercard Artist Accelerator

In 2023, we launched the first Mastercard Artist Accelerator program, connecting music fans, artists, and creators to emerging tech. 
This season we’re partnering with OnesToWatch to guide a new group of artists and their fans through the future of music as they work with mentors, learn about cutting-edge technology like Web3 and AI, and perform live around the world.
The journey starts here, and we want you to be a part of it.
