The competition Blues Aperitiv has raised a great interest
Also this year the international music contest Blues Aperitiv is going to give bluesmen a chance to win participation at the prestigious festival Blues Alive, which will take place in Šumperk from 17th to 19th November.
24 bands from Poland, Netherlands, UK, Slovakia and the Czech Republic have entered for the 16th year of Blues Aperitiv contest.
In early February the expert jury, chaired by Ondřej Bezr and consisting of music journalists, active musicians and festival promoters, chose seven groups, which are allowed to play alive at the final concert in Šumperk on Saturday, March 19.
Two winners will be selected from the seven bands and these bands are guaranteed to play at the renowned Blues Alive festival. Previous experience from past years gives a chance to more than two bands. The other bands that will capture the jury´s or the audience´s attention may get an invitation to play at side stages of Blues Alive or in Poland.
The final concert of Blues Aperitiv contest will be held on Saturday, March 19 at Culture House in Šumperk from 7.00 p.m. Admission fee is 90 Czech crowns.
