Calling all worldwide musicians…

The WOMEX 17 Call for Showcase Proposals is NOW CLOSED! Thanks to everyone who applied – our jury will meet soon and the WOMEX 17 programme will be announced in the coming months.

Each year, WOMEX assembles a broad selection of artists. The Jury-selected acts play in front of one of the largest audiences anywhere of dedicated international concert and festival bookers, tour promoters and venues, labels, distributors, journalists and industry professionals – everyone you need to help launch, re-launch, sustain and expand your career. In 2015, 280 artists from 50 countries took to seven stages as part of the Showcase Festival.

We welcome performances of all forms and styles – traditional, classical, modern, popular and electronic – with sets lasting 45 minutes. WOMEX Showcases have helped everyone from Cesária Évora, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Andy Palacio, Mariza, Baaba Maal, Tinariwen, Seu Jorge and Bajofondo Tangoclub to Ska Cubano, Melingo, Ester Rada, Ojos de Brujo, Chocquibtown, Staff Benda Bilili, Danyèl Waro, Bomba Estéreo, Ibrahim Maalouf, Mokoomba, A-Wa, Jambinai and Noura Mint Seymali to establish themselves on the international circuit.

Important: Funding: Please note that WOMEX is not in the position to cover any fees, travel expenses or other costs. What we do provide is the stage, the necessary equipment to perform, local transport to and from the airport and the venue, and our extensive promotional treatment on equal basis with all other WOMEX Showcase artists. That includes promotion of the show itself, newsletters, online promo, publication of full bios and contact details in our WOMEX Guide, and much more. Additionally, all invited artists will get free full access to all features of WOMEX, plus one free registration for our partner of agreement (the artist representative).

So, if you want to propose a showcase, please think carefully about financing and let the Jury know what support or funding you have.

We can't wait to hear your wonderful submissions!
