The EuroMusic Contest is a non-institutional music competition based on innovative technologies and open to all European musicians, a Web 2.0 Eurovision. 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.
For the 2014 edition, the contest is open to 40 participating countries. 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.
After a first voting campaign, 1 artist/band per country will be selected. In April 2014, ten of them will be chosen by a jury composed of music industry professionals to represent their respective countries during the EuroMusic Live, a final event that will be streamed live from Paris in May 2014. During the EuroMusic Live the public can vote in real time on the live-streaming page for their favorite artists.
