„You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.“
Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues
All participants must perform an artistic programme created and composed by themselves or a performance of their choosing – either as a soloist or in an ensemble. This programme must be freely associated with the above quote by Bob Dylan. The performance can either be of existing, copyright-free material (texts, musical works, compositions, etc.) or be created anew.

The competition management reserves the right to reduce the technical requirements where necessary.
