SEA-EU Online Music Festival

“Celebrate our cultures through the music”

The SEA-EU alliance aims to promote their young musical talents by:

  • offering to SEA-EU artists a platform to promote their songs and showcase their talents.
  • organizing online live events to increase the visibility of our talents.

The aim is to disseminate our cultural differences and build our common European identity. Whether you’re a young unknown artist or an already established singer, the floor is yours!

Calendar of the activities

Applications for being added to the European platform will be continuously open, starting on the 1st of October. Embedding the video on the SEA-EU music web platform will start at the beginning of November.

If you want to participate in the live Festival to be celebrated in December on social media, you will have to submit your application before the 1st of November. The selection for the second live event (if any) will be done by including the songs submitted after the 1st of December. And so on…

You want to participate ?

The Music activity is free and open to all students and staff registered at one of 6 organizing universities. In the case of bands, at least one of the members is required to be a student or staff member. The song must be an original composition of the participating artist, or a folk / traditional music (as long as no copyright is applicable). The participants must hold the rights to their works and, as the case may be, have authorizations of visible people in the recordings.The choice of the song is completely free, regardless of the topic or the language. Each participant can submit as many songs as wanted. 

To participate, you need to:

  • fill the application form with basic information and consent agreements: https://sea-eu.org/music-fest-form/
  • upload your song on YouTube and send a pasted link to the video in the application form; select the “gold minute” of your song and upload it (in hard format) with the application.

Selection for the Online event(s)

The selection for the Online event(s) will be based on the European representativity (to have at least -and as far as possible- one participant per university), also by taking into account public opinions on the platform, diversity and/or similarity among the bands, and not on the artistic value (there is no professional jury behind; being selected – or not- does not say anything about the quality of your art).

Depending on the number of participants and their will to participate in the live events, we will organize a second live event. Selection will be done with the same criteria, in order to create a thematic event (like Rock day, Women day,…).

Respective responsibilities

Each participant declares being the author of the song, and acknowledges that he has all the necessary authorizations regarding his publication. Applicants agree to share their artistic production without any compensation. Participation implies the acceptance of these rules by the participants. Failure to comply will lead to the cancellation of the application. 

The organisers cannot be held responsible for any problem related to the course of the festival, whether the error is human, computer or other in nature. In case of force majeure, SEA-EU partners reserve the right to modify the present rules, postpone or cancel the festival. Its liability cannot be engaged as a result of these modifications. The festival organization reserves the right to delete any video that is considered to be not compliant with law or with European values (no apology of racism, etc), not compliant with the scope of the activity (typically if it is not music!) or if it does not reach a minimum level of quality. Any contestation related to the interpretation and application of these rules will be examined by the alliance that will make a decision following the spirit in which the festival has been launched.
