Are you upset you can’t play gigs anymore? And is the video you made from your bedroom not quite as great as you thought? Then raise the bar!

Rotterdamse Dakendagen, together with multiple concert venues in Rotterdam, is challenging musicians to record a music video on a rooftop within the most beautiful context there is: the city of Rotterdam. The best and most original rooftop gigs will be seen by Rotterdam venue programmers, you will get a chance to win a gig and you can compete for the grand prize of 1000 euros.

The From-Your-Rooftop Music Awards are made possible by Albeda, Annabel, Baroeg, BIRD, Blijdorp Festival, Codarts, De Doelen, Eendracht Festival, Festival Downtown, Grounds, Islemunda, LantarenVenster, Metropolis, Motel Mozaïque, Operator, Rotown, Theater Zuidplein, Triphouse, Yardbird and WORM. The programmers from these venues are part of the jury and will watch your video! In addition, Baroeg, BIRD, Eendracht Festival, Festival Downtown, Grounds, Metropolis, Motel Mozaïque and Rotterdamse Dakendagen have reserved a venue for a gig (once it’s permitted again) by the competitor of their choice.

The jury will choose the winner of the best rooftop video, who will receive 1000 euros. There are also awards for the Most Original Video and the Video with the Most Views.

Your music is worth paying attention to, so what are you waiting for?! Put yourself in the spotlight for those Rotterdam venue programmers!
