In Vocenae, summer is often known as the 'concert season', when hundreds of bands all across the nation break out of the cold winter hibernation period and bring music to the ears of the Vocian people. In the past this has been a Vocian only tradition, but this year many sponsors and even the government itself is encouraging foreign bands to come and enjoy the music and participate in many of the large multi-band concerts that take place throughout the country.
Since the winters are usually very fierce, late spring and early summer are really the only time young and old Vocians alike can get out and enjoy themselves without being miserably cold, and many are very eager to have fun before the winter comes again. The people are very receptive of anything that let's them get out of their homes and enjoy the warmer weather, so all foreign bands that wish to tour Vocenae will be welcomed with open arms.
Of course, all foreign bands will have to go trough custom to make sure they do not pose a threat to national security.
But feel free to list any bands from your respective countries that wish to take part in this season of dueling guitars and music loving crowds!
The inaugural EurthVision Song Contest will be hosted by Canastota in the United States of Prymont. It will be contested by eight countries, all of which will perform their chosen songs on the evening of June 25th. EurthVision is the first global song contest to be held by an organised body, after several national and regional variants gained traction.
Seven countries have qualified through qualifiers and semi-finals to perform, as well as the host country being granted a place in the finals alongside them. EurthVision 2018 will be organised by Prymont's Northern Music Entertainment, and will be hosted by Prymontian actress and TV personality Natalie Rødland, alongside rising national music star Jonas Riis. The contest will be held at the OstportX Arena, the largest indoor arena in the country with a seating capacity of 20,000. Throughout the previous week, tourists and locals alike have enjoyed casual music events in and around the city of Canastota, as part of the buildup for the EurthVision finals.

On the evening of the 25th of June 2018, all eight acts will perform their songs for their country at the OstportX Arena. Each country will be given twenty votes; ten to be issued by a panel of national music industry experts, and ten to be given by voters at home. At the end of the night, each country will reveal their votes, and once all of the results have been received, the winner of the first ever EurthVision global song contest will be revealed!
OOC: Here we have our 2018 EurthVision song contest, boys and girls. Here's how it'll work - from Monday June 25th to Wednesday July 4th, you can post your song down below. Be creative; include what is happening on the stage, backup dancers, lighting effects, reactions from the audience, etc (see here for inspiration). Once we've either reached July 4th or all posts have been submitted, you can send my your votes either on the forum's PM system or via Discord PM. Make sure this is done by Sunday July 8th. Once I've received all of the votes, I'll wrap up the contest with a final post and reveal the winner.
