HAI!

Welcome one and all to our annual mid-year break! After taking a year off to allow for celebrations of Buzzjack turning 10, Buzzjackfestivalen is returning for 2017!!! For the benefit of those of you who haven't participated in BJFest before here's a lil breakdown:

The format is shamelessly ripped off from SVT's flawless annual selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen. It takes place over 6 Saturdays in February and March and dictates the Swedish music scene for the rest of the year (and therefore what kind of music the UK and US public will be listening to 18-24 months later)

There are 4 heats, each will be hosted by a different moderating nation. The top 2 will qualify 'Direkt til GlobenMorpeth Cove' aka they get a golden ticket to the final. 3rd and 4th will get a second chance at making the final through 'Andra Chansen' (literally translates: another chance) in Aeroche. Top 2 from AC will join the top 2 in each heat in Morpeth Cove.

So far so good? Fab. These numbers are based on MF which currently runs 28, but used to run 32, tracks. Last year it worked fine with 44 entries. If we end up with more then we may change the number of songs going DTF (direct to final).


There is two more minor details. Just minor.

You may no enter any track that has appeared in Eurovision, or an national qualifiers for Eurovision. (If it's Scandi and under 3 mins it was written for Eurovision - so quadruple check it's not a MF reject). The same applies for Junior Eurovision. The Ryan of the Eurovision world.

Your song must be less than 3 minutes in length. Video can be however long it wants as long as the actual song is 3 minutes or under.



Details on dates shall be confirmed shortly but expect confirmations to drop the bank holiday weekend.

Mine's sort of the same ohmy.gif

This format is perfect for novelty entries, as you have only three minutes to make a big impression.

If I ever make the final of Buzzfest it will be a mirakel.

Very excited for the return of this! Think I'll be going with one of the tracks I considered for the scandipop spin-off.

The song I entered to the Scandipop spin off would've been perfect for this in terms of length actually!

Still, think I've got a few ideas for this one.

I actually came across a fab song that's bang on 3 minutes just the other day and thought that was perfect timing for this but tbh I don't really want to see it sink without trace here, I think I will save it to be sent to a main contest ~

So... I think I know what I'm sending and if so, I am also going novelty *.* I mean it worked the last time we did this and Ziggy Marley nearly won the whole thing for me laugh.gif Don't see this one doing near as well but this is my one chance to send this song to BJSC and I'm probably gonna take it xx

(Incidentally the song I sent to the Scandipop spinoff was one that I had as a potential for the last BJFest lol)

I think I have something, I just hope I don't do as horribly as last time, but I have absolutely no expectations for this.

Although last time I flopped in BJFest I made the top 10 the month after so...
