NEW FACES 2024: Open Call for Promising Young Professionals From the Former Yugoslavia region


As the echoes of success from New Faces 2023 continue to resonate, the regional music scene is once again abuzz with anticipation as the New Faces initiative launches its Open Call for 2024. This year's mission is to discover and support ten of the most promising young music professionals (up to 30 years old) from former Yugoslavia region, empowering them to transform their musical dreams into reality with the guidance of seasoned industry professionals.

In collaboration with leading regional festivals and conferences, including MENT Ljubljana (Slovenia), Kontakt (Serbia), SHIP (Croatia), and PIN Music Conference (North Macedonia), New Faces 2024 aims to bridge the gap between ambition and achievement. Nominations are now open until December 11th 2023, inviting the

public to shine a spotlight on young talents (up to 30 years old) actively contributing to the local and/or regional music scene. "It is crucial to acknowledge that the music industry extends beyond the artists on stage; it includes dedicated professionals working behind the scenes, such as event promoters, journalists, publishers, managers, and other indispensable contributors. With an initiative like New Faces, we, as festival partners, are providing young talents with the chance to enhance their skills. This not only elevates the importance of our mission but also contributes to the broader significance of our work."
