For a few weeks now and until April 10th, bands from 40 European countries can share their music to a wide audience of music lovers through The Euromusic Contest. Adapted to the new technologies and the digital music industry, and described as “Eurovision 2.0”, the Euromusic Contest aims at promoting new and emerging bands from the independent European music scene.
The event, which was first held in 2011 and received submissions from over 28 different countries, will see that number swell to 40 in its 2014 edition. Bands can still register until April 10th. Online voting will be open until the end of April to elect 40 pre-finalists, one from each country. In May, a jury made up of all kind of people passionate about music, from TV presenters to bedroom bloggers and everything in between, will pick 10 finalists. We’re pretty chuffed to be part of the jury and can’t wait to listen to the 40 tracks that make it to the top. The following month, the lucky 10 will get to perform at the contest’s final, a concert streamed live from Paris.

Hoping to hear you soon,
