Registration for Stärker Music Jams 2018 is now open until September 17. All local bands with original music are invited to apply for the competition. There are two rounds of the competition, the semi-finals and final rounds.
For the semi-finals rounds, shortlisted participants will be notified upon registration that they are required to perform a live set at one of the selected Stärker Music Outlet. Those live performances will be judged based on Public Voting (60%), a Music Industry Judge (20%) and Stärker’s Group Management (20%). Only three finalists will stand the chance to perform at Stärker Music Carnival 2018.
The three finalists will then perform a live showcase at the Stärker Music Carnival 2018 on 27 October. The bands will also be sharing the stage with several local and international acts as part of the carnival's line-up. An overall winner will be announced on the event day itself.
The winning band will receive the prize of a three-month residency with Stärker Music, and a one-year management deal with Cross Ratio Entertainment (subject to terms and conditions). On top of the the prizes stated, the winner of Stärker Music Jams will also get their music produced by George Leong.
