Are you a young European band of up to 8 members (16-25 years old) playing pop, electro, world, traditional or fusion music? You now have the chance to perform in front of thousands of young people at the heart of Europe during the Yo!Fest.

YO!Fest is the annual youth festival organised by the European Youth Forum and it forms part of the huge European Youth Event 2014: it combines politics, debates and workshops with live music and a variety of artistic performances, creating the perfect mix for an enjoyable and meaningful experience taking place in Strasbourg, France. 

The two winning bands of the EBC contest will have a 30 minutes performance on the main stage of the Yo!Fest's 5th edition and two gigs in the YO!Village during the day between 9 and 10 May. 

Applications must be submitted online and candidates will be notified by 20 April about the selection results. The band will also receive accommodation, travel as well as 50 euros for each member.


Apply now and in May you might be opening hot bands like Puggy, La Fanfare en Pétard, DJ FALCON and RIVA STARR!
