DOUBLE DARE

Cultural organization MIKSER is announcing a regional call for all non-affirmed bands and musicians, titled “DOUBLE DARE”.

This year, the music competition “DOUBLE DARE” within MIKSER FESTIVAL, is created not only for young, original bands, but for the first time ever, MIKSER FESTIVAL will also offer a historic chance to all bands whose members are 40 or older, as long as they play original, authentic music.

All interested bands can submit their applications from April 17th until May 16th of 2014, and thus compete for a chance to play live in front of a large crowd at this year’s MIKSER FESTIVAL, which will take place from June 3rd until June 8th, at Savamala in Belgrade, Serbia.

Furthermore, the original songs from chosen bands will also be featured on an official MIKSER FESTIVAL compilation album that will be published by a record company Mascom Records.

Bands that are eligible to enter the “DOUBLE DARE” competition must have their own original songs and also they should not have a previously published record (DIY recordings, online publications and such, are accepted).

In accordance with its name, the “DOUBLE DARE” competition has two categories: FOREVER YOUNG and NEW POWER.

FOREVER YOUNG

Many great artists have created their best works and records in their adult or late years; Leonard Cohen did not publish his first album until he was 33!

So if you are 40+, you love music and you have awesome band-mates playing with you, “FOREVER YOUNG” competition is your chance for a new start and a shot to have a life of a music star. Experience the magic of a stage, the sweat that comes with performing under the spotlight and a huge crowd waiting for your first riff!

NEW POWER

As in previous years, MIKSER FESTIVAL continues to support young, non-affirmed bands from the region. The winning band in this category will not only get a chance to perform at the MIKSER FESTIVAL, but will also get a record deal from the Mascom Records company, that’s valued at 1,000,000.00 Serbian dinars and includes:

  • A publishing deal
  • The production and distribution of physical compact discs
  • Digital distribution of the material
  • The promotion support and public representation of the records to the media

The application for both competitions must include:

  • 2 or more YouTube videos of the band
  • 2 songs in mp3 or flac format
  • 2 photos of the band
  • A short biography
  • A signed consent that one of two songs submitted can be used on the compilation record that will be published by Mascom Records and MIKSER FESTIVAL. (The band can choose which song they want published).
 

The competitions are open for bands from:

Serbia
Croatia
Slovenia
Macedonia
Montenegro
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hungary
Romania
Bulgaria
Albania

The quality of the recording submitted, as well as the previous experience and the music education will not be considered as an advantage when choosing a winner.

The accent is put on the quality of the music ideas presented as well as the overall impression of the band.

The judges’ panel will consist of known musicians and producers from the region and their job will be to select bands that will perform at the MIKSER FESTIVAL. One winning band from each category will also get a chance to perform at the closing MIKSER FESTIVAL ceremony at the MIKSER House.

Deadlines:

The competitions are open from April 17th until May 16th of 2014, while the results will be announced on May 18th 2014.

Important Notice:

Mikser Festival will cover all travel expenses for the participating bands, while there will be no fee for the performances.

The judges’ decisions are final. All bands that apply take full responsibility in case of plagiarism or authorship claims. Unless all the above stated conditions are met, the submitted entries will not be taken into consideration.

Kulturna organizacija Mikser raspisuje regionalni konkurs za neafirmisane bendove: „DOUBLE DARE“ – „DVOSTRUKI IZAZOV“

Ove godine muzički konkurs Mikser festivala: „DOUBLE DARE“ – „DVOSTRUKI IZAZOV“  namenjen je ne samo mladima koji se bave autorskom muzikom, već Mikser pruža istorijsku muzičku šansu i autentičnim novim bendovima čija je prosečna starost članova 40 i više godina.

Konkurs je otvoren od 17. aprila do 16. maja 2014, a najbolji bendovi će dobiti priliku da nastupe pred brojnom publikom na ovogodišnjem Mikser festivalu, koji se održava od 3. do 8. juna u Savamali.

Pored toga, autorske numere odabranih sastava naćiće se i na kompilacijskom CD-u koji će objaviti izdavačka kuća Mascom Records, i biće oficijelni proizvod Mikser festivala 2014.

Pravo učešća na „DOUBLE DARE“ konkursu imaju svi autorski bendovi koji nemaju zvanično izdanje (DIY, online izdanja i slične forme se prihvataju), a konkurs, u skladu sa svojim nazivom, ima dve kategorije:

ZAUVEK MLADI / FOREVER YOUNG

Mnogi veliki umetnici svoja nabolja dela stvorili u srednjim ili poznim godinama; Leonard Cohen svoj prvi album objavio je tek u 33. godini.

Ako imate 40+, volite muziku i imate dobru ekipu „ZAUVEK MLADI - FOREVER YOUNG“ je vaša šansa za preokret i novi život muzičke zvezde. Doživite čari koncertne bine, znoj na čelu pod svetlima reflektora i masu obožavatelja/ki koji pred binom čekaju vaš prvi rif!

NOVA SNAGA / NEW POWER

Kao i prethodnih godina Mikser podržava mlade neafirmisane bendove iz regiona. Najbolji bend u ovoj kategoriji od izdavačke kuće Mascom Records dobija izdavački paket u vrednosti od 1,000,000.00 dinara koji sadrži:

  • Izdavački ugovor
  • Proizvodnju i distribuciju fizičkih nosača zvuka
  • Digitalnu distribuciju
  • Registraciju, administraciju i zaštitu dela i autora
  • Promotivnu  podršku i distribuciju sadržaja medijima.

Prijava za oba konkursa mora da sadrži:

  • 2 (ili više) youtube link-a sa snimcima benda
  • 2 pesme u mp3 ili flac formatu
  • 2 fotografije
  • Kratku biografiju benda
  • Potpisanu saglasnost da se jedna od dve poslate pesme (po izboru benda) nađe na kompilacijskom CD-u u izdanju Mascoma i Mikser Festivala.

Konkursi su otvoreni  za sastave iz:

Srbije
Hrvatske
Slovenije
Makedonije
Crne Gore
Bosne i Hercegovine
Mađarske
Rumunije
Bugarske
Albanije

Kvalitet snimka, iskustvo i muzičko obrazovanje neće biti sami po sebi prednost pri odabiru pobednika. Prioritet je kvalitet muzičkih ideja i opšti utisak.

Mešoviti žiri koji čine istaknuti muzičari i producenti iz regiona napraviće selekciju bendova koji će nastupiti na festivalu. Dok će po jedan najbolji sastav iz obe kategorije nastupiti i na ceremoniji zatvaranja Mikser festivala u Mikser House-u.

ROKOVI: Konkursi su otvoreni od 17. aprila do 16. maja 2014. Rezultati konkursa biće objavljeni 18. maja 2014. godine.

NAPOMENE:

MIKSER FESTIVAL pokriva troškove puta za učesnike konkursa, dok se nastupi ne honorišu.

Odluke žirija su konačne. Prijavljeni bendovi snose svu odgovornost u slučaju tvrdnje vezane za autorstvo ili mogući plagijat. Ukoliko se ne ispune svi gore navedeni uslovi, podneti predlog neće biti uzet u razmatranje.
