The From-Your-Rooftop-Music Awards are back! After a successful first edition last year, we organised the competition for best music video on a rooftop again, as part of our alternative programme in 2021.
With the awards, musicians can win cash prizes and be seen by music professionals. Together with multiple concert venues in Rotterdam, we challenged musicians to record a music video on a rooftop within the most beautiful context there is: the city of Rotterdam.
The videos are viewed and judged by programmers from, among others, Annabel, Baroeg, BIRD, Codarts, De Doelen, Eendracht Festival, Festival Downtown, New Grounds, Islemunda, LantarenVenster, Theater Zuidplein, Metropolis and Rotown.
