Caixa do Som

Entries open for the county's young amateur bands contest

The project "Caixa do Som", a contest for young amateur bands of the municipality, is back to Matosinhos. Created in 2009, as a privileged meeting point for garage bands and young audiences, the initiative aims to give stage to new musical projects of the municipality, rewarding the most outstanding.

The participants must be part of musical groups, with at least two members, and at least half of the band members must be residents of the Matosinhos municipality and be aged between 16 and 25. Professional musicians with published editions are not allowed to participate in the contest.

The competition will be divided into four stages. The bands must register by filling in the registration form and deliver a video demonstrating their work; the videos will be analysed by the technical jury, composed by the artists S. Pedro and Tiago Nacarato, who will select the four best groups to go on to the final; on December 10, the final will be played at Exponor, and the four chosen bands will perform live in front of the public, who will be responsible for voting for their favourite band; the winning group will be announced after the free concert by AGIR.

Registrations for "Caixa do Som" are already open and will run until 2 December.

The winning band will be awarded a prize of 500 euros, as well as the possibility of recording at Boom Studios.

The show at Exponor on December 10 is free, but requires registration to collect tickets.
