MTV announced at SXSW on Thursday that they are launching a brand new artist platform, Artists.MTV. The site will be open for independent and established musicians alike. MTV’s hope is that users will create profiles at a digital hub for their online presence.

In addition to providing an online home for music, the site will also host a monthly contest where fan votes will determine music that will be featured on MTV, VH1, and CMT (all owned by parent company Viacom).

The site will begin in beta May 2012–are you looking forward to trying it out?
