On The Way To Imagine Sweden

Imagine Sweden hits the road

Back

Imagine is an encounter between pop, heavy metal, electro, jazz, hip-hop, classical, world music, ska, punk... Imagine mixes music genres to be as inclusive as possible! The only condition to participate: be between the ages of 12 to 20.

The 2015 edition, that will be held the last weekend of June in Brussels, Belgium, willl provide to very young musicians a wide range of activities - from workshops and classes to Jam sessions - in order to boost their music creativity. The very purpose of Imagine is to encourage these young people to express their talent by offering the possibility to play in professional conditions before a large audience.

In Sweden, Imagine is a huge event, the widest live competition for young musicians aged from 13 to 21. This year, the festival is organized in 17 regions with for almost each of them a serie of auditions and preselections which ends with a regional final. The national final will be held in the region of Skåne, in Kristianstad, from May 14 to 16. Here is the whole agenda (to be completed):
