WOMEX welcomes submissions from any artist, including upcoming acts as well as seasoned professionals. The selected acts will perform for an audience of influential professionals from the global music industry, including concert and festival programmers, tour promoters and venues (around 800 attended WOMEX 2013), offering musical acts a tremendous launching pad for the international phase of their careers.
The Showcase Festival (and Conference) selection is made each year by a group of seven Jury members, also known as the 7 Samurai, selected from within the international music community. In 2013, WOMEX received over 850 artist proposals for around 40 slots.
The deadline for all showcase proposals is Friday, April 18, 2014 (just before the Easter weekend). This is a public holiday in WOMEX’s home country, Germany. Submissions should be sent early to ensure timely arrival.
