3.2. Participants who are under the age of 16 must send the authorisation form completed by their father/mother/legal guardian at the same time as the registration form. The deadline is 5 July 2022.

If this document is not sent, the group/solo performer may be disqualified and their place will be allocated to someone else according to the order of participants on the waiting list.

3.3. In order to complete the registration process and take part in the competition, participants must send the following by email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Once the file has been sent, the chosen song or remix cannot be changed. Up until this point, changes can be made by sending a prior notification to the organisation by email.
  • Sending the audio file late will result in the group/solo performer being disqualified.

3.4. All changes relating to the registration process must be notified by email to the organisation. Possible changes will be managed as follows:

  • As mentioned in point 3.3., once the song file has been sent, it cannot be changed. If a change is wanted and the places are filled, the participant will join the waiting list (solo performer or group). To do this, they will need to register again providing the required information.
  • The number of group members can be changed, respecting the maximum number of group members allowed, but you are not allowed to swap from a group with two or more members to become a solo performer.
  • If a group member wishes to take part as a solo performer, they must notify the organisation of their leaving the group and send a new registration from with the required information.

  • Changes to the number of group members can only be made up to two days before the competition (Friday 22 July), except in the event of an emergency or force majeure.
  • The organisation must be consulted regarding name changes, both to groups and solo performers. If this option is possible, name changes will not affect either the entry or the competition running order.

3.5. If an entry is withdrawn, the organisation will be notified via email. Withdrawing from the competition would mean that:

  • If a group or solo performer withdraws before the competition, they may not register again and take up their previous place. They would go to the bottom of the waiting list if all the places were filled.
  • If a group/solo performer withdraws, the next group/solo performer on the waiting list will take part. This will only happen up to four days before the competition (Wednesday 20 July). If a participant withdraws after this point, NO other participants will be chosen to perform. The next group/solo performer on the waiting list will therefore be notified on Wednesday 20 July at the latest that they have been chosen to take part.
