European bands compete at EWOB for the # 1 European Bluegrass Band Award! The winning band is selected by the musicians playing at the EWOB Festival!
No band application fee (money) is required to apply for a European World of Bluegrass Festival showcase.
EWOB CDs: It is understood that when your band applies for a showcase at the EWOB Festival, you agree to allow Strictly Country Records to choose tracks from your performances for EWOB CDs and musical productions to help promote the EWOB Festival and your music.
PHOTO AND VIDEO: It is understood that when your band applies for a showcase at the EWOB Festival, you agree to allow the audience to take pictures or film your performance. If you do not want this to happen, you must inform the organisation yourself prior to your performance.
