Song of 2018: Which One Should Prevail? Vote!

Ten songs, ten different feelings. You have the chance to decide which one should be on the top this year. Check them out & VOTE your favorite Hungarian Single!

 

 

It’s hard to imagine but another year just passed by and here we are: Song of 2018 is just about to begin! What does it mean? We pick 10 songs now, and YOU can vote which ONE is going to be the Number 1. So, it’s a sort of competition but we also wanna show you what’s happening in the Hungarian underground & newcomer scene.

 

Our compilation is a representative selection based on bands mostly featured in our articles this year with one track nominated by the Fans for the first time in our history. It’s also important that we try to put different kinda songs – making sure that there is a diversity of genres, style, atmosphere & lyrics (and language). The winner has the chance to play at Campus Festival, Művészetek Völgye Festival in 2019, and also has a possibility to perform with an international formation at Dürer Kert by our collaboration with New Beat collective.

 

We hope you will enjoy it. So, check them out, decide & VOTE 🙂 You can do it on the bottom of the article. If you wanna keep yourself updated: JOIN our Facebook Event, which will be the epicentre of the contest. You will be able to VOTE till 31.12.2017.
