Using the slogan "Viva la FreevoluCCión", a combination of the rallying cry "Viva la Revolución", "Free" as in "Free! Music! Contest" and "CC", the abbreviation of Creative Commons, the 5th Free! Music! Contest has just started. Organized by Musikpiraten e.V., the contest is fairly well-known in the CC music scene - bands from all over the world already participated.
As in 2012, this year all CC licenses are allowed - and Jamendo is an official partner of the contest!
Just like the past years, a double-CD packed to the brim with the best songs of the contest is going to be produced. A jury chooses the best tracks and takes care that the best of every genre is featured - from Trash Metal to Hip Hop and Blues, whatever the artists submit.
Moreover, vouchers worth 100€ will be raffled among all participants - even the willingness to make one's music free shall be rewarded! Last but not least, there will be a gig near Heidelberg to win. Due to travelling costs, this one is very likely to go to a band from Germany ;)
Register right here until July 31st, 2013!
