YEAH! is Europe's first competition for music mediation & outreach.
YEAH! is on the lookout for new concert formats and participative projects that use innovative ways to make music attractive for young people and for the young at heart. YEAH! wants to support European music culture that is modern and open and stands for creativity and quality. The YEAH! award is given to productions and projects in the categories "performance" and "process" and is endowed with a total of 40,000 euro.
Over 100 projects from 20 European countries had applied for the third round of the renowned competition. 15 projects were nominated. The winners will be announced on 19th of June 2015 in Osnabrück. => More information about the finalists.
Cross-border encounters through music - that's the idea behind YEAH! Young EARopean Award and its festival. Not only will the celebratory award ceremony take place at the festival from 16th to 20th of June in Osnabrück, Germany; the festival also adds a wonderful podium to the competition, spotlighting young and up to date concert formats. Performances, workshops and conferences form an inspiring marketplace for European encounters and a lively exchange of ideas.
YEAH! Young EARopean Award is a project of the Stiftung Stahlwerk Georgsmarienhütte and the netzwerk junge ohren.
