Call for Applications: Showcase proposal for WOMEX 20 in Budapest, Hungary, 21-25 October 2020


Deadline: 13 March 2020

WOMEX explicitly welcomes proposals from all backgrounds and especially encourages proposals which increase the diversity of the international music scene - be it culturally, regionally or as regards to gender.

Our sets are 45 mins long and our Jury wants to hear the best from all artists who deserve wider audiences and have the professional standards to tour.


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.

In case you are on the hunt for funding, we highly recommend for you to get in touch with the Export Office from your country or region.
