The anticipation for the winners is bigger than ever, since this year the main prize has been raised to 5000 euros, thanks to the growing interest of the artists international community for the festival.
Exclusively selected jury members, active in the international art scene, will decide the winners in 14 categories and 140 nominated music videos. Their work will be even more challenging compared to the previous year, not only owing to the quality of the selected music videos but also, because one more category has been added to the list, this of the “Best Performer”.
The festival is known for presenting both electrifying and provocative acts on stage and this year is not going to be an exception. Parma Ham, who became popular on the international nightclub scene for their music, extreme look and attitude will be DJing during the event, while also judging for the “Most Bizarre” category. South African singer Toya Delazy will be there as well to perform their signature music genre called “AfroRave”, infusing techno, drum & bass and beats with Zulu lyricism.
该音乐节以在舞台上呈现电光火石和挑衅性的行为而闻名，今年也不会是一个例外。因其音乐、极端的外观和态度而在国际夜总会舞台上走红的Parma Ham将在活动期间担任DJ，同时还将担任 “最怪异 “类别的评委。南非歌手Toya Delazy也将在现场表演他们的招牌音乐类型 “AfroRave”，将技术、鼓与贝斯和节拍与祖鲁语抒情相结合。
Apart from the mentioned artists, the program will include performances from Puerto Rican singer RaiNao, O/RIOH, guitarist the Shredder and artists Baris Safari, Sedrik Perry, while band ÄTNA, Germany’s most exciting newcomers with over 8-million streams of their music, will be performing in the event’s after show, on the 8th of June.
