Do you have a band/duo/musical project? Are you able to record yourself performing some music? Do you want to play a gig… online and get paid? Read down below and find out how!
The selection phase is officially closed! We will get in touch with the selected bands privately.
What is Music Never Stops Festival?
Because of the current world’ situation, the entertainment and music industries have been suffering a lot. Lots of festivals were cancelled, but that didn’t stop people from asking to be entertained. Thanks to live streaming, musicians were allowed to perform to their fans directly from their homes.
We know that many of you were looking forward to the summer to play gigs, festivals or embark into tours. That’s why we decided to give the opportunity to musicians from all over the world to play a virtual gig and get paid!
You will play online!
We’ll pick 5 bands that will get the opportunity to perform on our YouTube channel – and on top of that, you will also get paid your fee as if you were playing in a real location!
Every band will play a 20-minutes set and will have the opportunity to reach new fans, showcase their music and get the recognition they deserve!
On top of that, every band/artist/group performing will get paid 1.000€ – more infos about that on the Terms & Conditions page.
How do I send my audition?
You’ll find a form below that you have to fill with all the relevant information about your musical project.
Due to technical requirements, we are asking every participant to record a short audition tape / medley to showcase what you’re capable of and if you have the technical equipment to pull this off.
Please upload your video to YouTube/Vimeo/Facebook and paste the link into the corresponding field in the submission form. Entries missing the audition link will not be taken into consideration.
Deadline for all submissions is July 20th, 23:59:59. Hurry up!
What happens next?
If you’ll get selected to play, you will get in touch with one of our organisers and discuss your availability and your fee. You will subsequently be asked to send a 20 minute clip (or several clips with your songs that should be 20 min in total). Deadline is key here as we all want the festival to happen soon, so please be serious about it!
We’ll accept only bands that will provide the material in a timely manner and with good audio and video quality. We’re looking at at least Full HD videos (1080p) and 48 kHz / 44.1 kHz audio quality at the highest bitrate possible. The songs have to be mixed and, if possible, already mastered for the video.
A few tips
- use good lighting! take advantage of natural light or just use white LED lamps to achieve good results
- today’s smartphone are more than capable of pulling off a 4K video, so feel free to use one if you don’t own a DSLR/Mirrorless or Digital videocamera.
Ready? Fill the form and… good luck!
