The “Partnership for Music 2.0” competition is a return to the project implemented in 2018 supporting our local artists. Artists, music producers, DJs, as well as music clubs and organizers of small club concerts and chamber concerts operating in Krakow can get the help they need thanks to the project of the City of Krakow and the Krakow Festival Office. Submissions will be assessed by the jury submitted, among others from music journalists. The deadline for sending the first entries is May 28. The “Partnership for Music 2.0” programme will last until the end of August 2020.

The support programme for the music industry “Partnership for Music 2.0” is aimed at facilitating a wide audience contact with the music of Krakow artists by playing it at home, as well as participating in online concerts. It is addressed to local artists, performers, music producers, DJs, music clubs, organizers of small club concerts, arrangers, as well as composers, whose financial situation has deteriorated due to the state of the COVID-19 epidemic. The maximum amount that winning projects can receive is PLN 5,000.

The goal of the Competition is to create a real support programme for the music sector in connection with the COVID-19 epidemic, as well as the development of the music industry in connection with the strategy of developing the culture of the City of Krakow 2030 area III: Culture and Cultural Heritage and our culture-forming mission stated in the KBF statute – says Izabela Helbin, the director of the Krakow Festival Office. – This is just one of many assistance programmes that we are currently implementing in consultation with the local artistic community and the representatives of the creative industries sector.
