Open Stage Contest at Jazz in the Park

Jazz in the Park, the first festival in Romania that brings good music to the city’s parks, announces a contest for amateurs during the second edition – 4-6 July.
Our purpose is to promote local talents, so that Jazz in the Park becomes a launching pad for amateur musicians. There is no age limit for the participants, as we want to encourage all those who love jazz”, declared Alin Vaida, the director of the festival.

Amateur jazz bands from Romania that want to affirm themselves are expected to register. All variations of jazz with different influences are accepted: classic jazz, nu jazz, jazz fusion, acid jazz, jazz covers, etc., as well as blues. A jury will select the best band according to a set of criteria. The winner will receive a prize of 1.000 euros and the chance to perform in the opening of the third edition of Jazz in the Park.

All those interested to participate have to send a recording or a link to a recording to the following address: Deadline: 30 June, 23:59.
Based on the demo, the jury will select 10-14 bands, which will perform live in the finals of the contest, on the stage set up in Iulius Park. During the final, each band will have 25 minutes for a mini-concert in order to convince the jury. Every day, 5-7 auditions will be scheduled and the entry is free. At the end of the auditions, the jury will decide the winning band, which will be announced before the last concert of the festival - July 6th. The criteria that will be used by the jury are: the virtuosity of the interpretation; the context in which the artists started singing; stage presence; communication with the public; originality.

The participation in the competition is free and the organisers will provide the sound system for each band. The rules and additional details are available in the Contest section on the site.
