How does it work

Before thrusting you under such a big spotlight we need to check a few things

Online shortlist

Once the acts have been shortlisted, their information (band photo, bio, MP3/video) will be uploaded to our 1M Europe website. Then they will be selected by 1M Europe jury.
Before we put you in front 100K people just need to check you can do it live, so you will be selected for Live Selections. You choose in which city you want to perform.
