Change of rules for the age group from 14 to 17 years

Dear applicants and all interested parties. At the last minute, we decided to additionally provide an adaptation or cover for the selection of songs for the category of 14 to 17 years. Many parents have confided in us that during the year of the Covid 19 pandemic you did not have the opportunity to record in a music studio, so this year we exceptionally and at the last minute decided to change the conditions of participation for the age group from 14 to 17 by allowing those singers to apply. and singers who don’t have their own song and would like to perform with a cover.

The same applies to all of you who have already registered for the festival, only if you are registered in a group of 14 to 17 years old and would rather perform with a cover than with your own song. In this case, the applicant can find the mail he received immediately after the application and change the content of his application at will.

Given that the organizers decided to make this change at the last minute after talking to the producers, at the same time we are extending the deadline for registration for the festival to June 18, 2021.

The audition remains on June 20, 2021 at 3 p.m., and is conducted for all age groups in order from youngest to oldest. You will receive the link for the audition to the e-mail address of the applicant on Saturday, June 19 in the afternoon.
