Concurso de Bandas NOVA Música, the bands competition from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, is back! This is the fourth edition of the competition integrated in Festival NOVA Música and organized by the Social Welfare Services of NOVA.
The competition is open to solo artists and bands that have at least one student (or former student) from NOVA (from 1st to 3rd cycle, including students participating in mobility programs).
Enrollment must be done until the 4th of May by submitting the enrollment form in the competition's website, including the URL from Youtube where the file was inserted with the song, which must be an unreleased theme.
The songs will be analyzed by a jury and voted by the public, which will pick three bands to play at a final where the winning band will be chosen. The winner will have a direct entrance to Festival NOVA Música.
From May 7 the songs will be available at the Facebook page of Festival NOVA Música and in the wesbite of the competition . Voting will be done by the public until May 13 through likes on Facebook's posts. The post with more likes qualifies the band for the final. The remaining finalists will be chosen by the jury, whose final constitution will be announced in the website before the final day for public vote.
Finalists will be announced on the website and at the Facebook's page of the festival on May 14.
