Buzzjackfestivalen 2015


Hello all! It's that time of year again! ohmy.gif

I haven't had the time to do any graphics yet but I might be able to throw together a few bits over the next few days or so. But anyway, welcome to Buzzjackfestivalen! We're taking a wee break from BJSC, but Mikey should be with you for the next edition at the end of June. This little spin-off is here for those of you who wish to participate. It doesn't count towards stats or anything - it's purely a bit of fun!

This spin-off is based on the Swedish Eurovision national final process Melodifestivalen. We're still confirming minor changes to the format for this year's edition but the general idea is:

4 heats (hosted by none other than the floppy mods themselves)
1 AC ('Andra chansen' = 'Second Chance' for all you civilian flops who get a second chance of qualifying to the final)
1 Final

Before confirmations open tomorrow night, here are some little rules in addition to the normal BJSC rules:

- Songs must be a maximum of 3 minutes in length. They can be shorter if you wish, but not a second over 3:00. The video can be longer than 3 minutes, as long as the song itself is 3:00 or shorter. You can also enter a song longer than 3 minutes if YOU are willing to edit it down for the purposes of the competition. If there is any doubt then PM either myself, Yu, Silas or Jahq.

- No Eurovision or Junior Eurovision songs are allowed, nor are any songs that have competed in national finals for either of these competitions. Of course Eurovision artists are allowed, but not with the song(s) they entered with.

More details will be given when Confirmations open tomorrow night!

Hope to see as many of you as possible! x

Provisional dates:

Confirmations: Monday May 25 - Friday May 29 (or Saturday May 30)
Detävlingar: Monday 1 June - Thursday June 4
Andra chansen: Friday June 5 - Monday June 8
Finalen: Wednesday June 10 - Saturday June 14

Also got something ready, quite a fun childhood favourite of mine that I'd never send to BJSC but I feel it'll work for a spin-off that's a bit of fun. I look forward to it!

I'm hoping to take part anyway, have a perfect song that I love.

We'll see on the numbers (they were down last year) but 32 would be ideal if there is enough demand.

I've had a song decided for a month or so now, I'm out tomorrow night so hopefully all the places don't run out before I get a chance to confirm! ohmy.gif I'll try and pop onto my phone anyway.

Perhaps against my better judgement I have chosen to enter this year happy.gif

We've gone for something relatively poppy, hopefully pop enough for the pop-centric tastes of BJFest at least! (not that it matters, since we'll just finish bottom of the table again, as per usual~~)

oh this is exciting biggrin.gif

I have a few artists in mind, it's just a case of finding a song that isn't over 3 mins but for my favourite artist that's proving to be quite difficult as most of their songs are too long laugh.gif

Readying my first non-James Blake BJFest entry. Y'all prepare to be inspired. (Unless the song is rejected by the mods in which case I have nothing else currently lined up and may not enter at all)

I do hope people are actually planning to send GOOD SONGS this time, I was left rather disappointed by the last two editions of this.

Whittling down to a few songs that I know are 3 minutes long or lower biggrin.gif There's a pretty high chance that I may go instrumental for this smile.gif

Also a high chance that it may be a video game song smile.gif
