- Re-arrange the Christmas song in the genre that you picked, and make a video of yourself playing/performing the song.
- Any type of performance is allowed: full band, guitar cover, vocal cover or a dj/electronic remix.

- Include the appropriate hashtags: #ItsYourTimeToRemix and #Thomann so that we can find your posts using the search function.
- Additional text to the video is of course always welcome 😉
- The jury consisting of our community managers will announce the winners on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
- Once again: Deadline is December 19th 23:59 CET!
👇 Tips 👇
The winner is not decided based on the actual music, but rather the overall package i.e. originality, creativity, humor, entertainment, performance and musical performance. Please do not forget to set your profile to “public”, otherwise your video can not be viewed and would therefore be excluded from participating in the contest.
Have fun and good luck!
