Reggae band contest – Uprising Stars 2019 (International)

Last year we discovered several talented bands and artists in Slovakia with our contest. For this season we decided to search for talent also behind the borders of our country and give a chance to showcase their talent to any promising reggae, ska, dancehall or dub band/artist/project from Europe. Second edition of our band contest “Uprising Stars” is here and we hope to discover some hidden gems and have them performing on this years Uprising Festival.
