Important information

Health and security are the top priority for the European Music Festival for Young People. In the context of Covid-19 the festival will verify if each participant/spectator is vaccinated twice, has a negative PCR-test which is not older than 48 hours or that he/she has recovered from corona in the past six months. Be aware: an antigen test is only valid for 24 hours. Self-tests are not accepted.

In Belgium you can prove this by showing a Covid Safe Ticket. You can download this ticket via the CovidSafeBE-app. For Europeans who come from a EU member state (incl. Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) the possession of an European corona certificate is valid.

To complete the registration for the vocal festival edition of 2021, we expect following documents to be completed and sent in:

  • the registration form 
  • a detailed list of participants as requested in the registration form
  • one score of all pieces mentioned in your jury programme
  • a recent (digital) photo of the ensemble
  • a recent sound recording – mandatory for all participants
  • a recent DVD recording or qualitative link on the internet – mandatory for those registering for the pennant categories
