EuroMusic Contest 2014

<p> <img alt="About" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The EuroMusic Contest</strong> is a non-institutional <strong>music competition based on innovative technologies</strong> and open to all European musicians, <strong>a Web 2.0 Eurovision</strong>. A first edition of the EuroMusic Contest had already been organised in 2011, in 28 countries and in partnership with SoundCloud, and had generated more than 110 000 votes and attracted 2 200 artists.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>For the 2014 edition, the contest will be open to the 40 participating countries</strong>*. This competition provided with an on-line voting system will allow every Internet user to participate in the selection of the finalist musicians or bands. Synchronised with social network Facebook, the contest will be the world’s first both numerical and viral musical competition and will promote the emergent music scene as well as the inter-cultural exchange.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>After a first two-month voting campaign </strong>(March-April 2014), <strong>1 artist/band per country will be selected</strong>. In May 2014, <strong>ten of them will be chosen by a jury composed of music industry professionals </strong>to represent their respective countries during the <strong>EuroMusic Live</strong>, a final event that will be streamed live from Paris in June 2014. During the EuroMusic Live the public can vote in real time on the live-streaming page for their favorite artists.</p> <p>  </p> <p> We’ve already financed and designed the ergonomic EuroMusic Contest website that will host the live streaming of the EuroMusic Live, built the online voting system synchronised with social networks and worked on a transmedia communication strategy. </p> <p>  </p> <p> Today we are launching this one-month KissKissBankBank campaign to raise funds for the EuroMusic Live. We want to propose <strong>something else, something more</strong>, in accordance with the <strong>numerical world we are living</strong> in BUT are <strong>independent</strong>. We therefore are not supported by any institution or giant label and <strong>NEED YOU</strong> to gather funds so we have the capital to put it out with great bands. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>*Albania - Andorra - Austria - Belarus - Belgium - Bosnia-Herzegovina - Bulgaria - Croatia - Czech Republic  - Denmark - Estonia - Finland - France - Germany - Greece - Hungary - Ireland - Iceland - Italy - Latvia - Lithuania - Luxembourg - Macedonia - Malta - Moldova - Monaco - Netherlands - Norway - Poland - Portugal - Romania - Russia - Serbia - Slovakia - Slovenia - Spain - Sweden - Switzerland - United Kingdom - Ukraine </em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>**ALL SHIPPING COSTS ARE INCLUDED IN EVERY PACKAGE, NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE!</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Innovative" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The EuroMusic Live will be the first ever digital event with no obligation for payment</strong>.

At the cutting edge of technology, it has been built one hundred percent with new technologies: </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Website" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Founded in 2011,<strong> <a href="" target="_blank">MyBandMarket</a> is the first on-line booking platform. This French startup puts in relation artists and bookers by pricing the artists' live performances according to their social media fan-bases and communities. </strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> MyBandMarket blog, <strong><a href="" target="_blank">MyBandNews</a></strong>, rapidly become the first French music webzine (<a href="" target="_blank">ebuzzing</a> - <em>November 2013</em>). With a team of 30 young and talented writers and more than 1 000 000 unique visitors in 2013, the MBM community is getting bigger and bigger.</p> <p>  </p> <p> In March 2013 MyBandMarket joined the adVICE, the VICE International media group, and prepares the Web 2.0 version of its Internet website for 2014, that will enable its worldwide expansion.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Div'Up and MyBandMarket are co-ordinating the EuroMusic Contest and shall be <strong>among the top music companies in 2014</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Quentin-ceo" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The EuroMusic Live needs the best producer, and we found iConcerts!</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Banner-iconcerts" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong><a href="">iConcerts</a> </strong>is the first editor of exclusive multimedia content dedicated to live music, that proposes the biggest live music and concert catalogue.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Available on TV via the iConcerts HD channel, also on VOD, on the web, smart-TVs, smart-phones and tablets, iConcerts' content can be watched in over 140 countries in the world</strong>.
