Since its first edition in 2010, the Screaming Fields Festival, organized by Rocklab, has become the yearly launch pad for young and talented bands and musicians from Luxembourg.
In June and July, the 8 selected bands and artists have benefited from special preparation packages developed by Rocklab: specific workshops (vocals, home recording techniques), meetings where the bands and artists got insight into some technical essentials (stage plot, tech rider), author's rights, and communication tools and strategies (social media), as well as interview sessions at radio 100,7. The preparation sessions were rounded off by a live rehearsal at the Club of the Rockhal, during which newcomers had the chance to get familiar with a professional venue and learn how to handle their on-stage monitor sound, whereas the advanced ones worked on their live performance and the development of their live set. On the day of the festival, several prizes awaited the final winners, who all received further artist support packages put together by Rocklab and the partners of the event.
Screaming Fields Song Contest
The second edition of the Screaming Fields Song Contest, organized by Rocklab, in partnership with Cactus, was met with incredible enthusiasm by young local up-and-coming songwriters, MCs and beatmakers. The jury, composed of the partners of the contest as well as musicians and people active in the local scene, had no easy task choosing the final winner among the 16 candidates.
In the end, young Ema convinced the jury with subtle lyrics and a careful composition rendering a delicate interpretation of the contest's topic.
As a happy winner of an Artist Package offered by Cactus and put together by Rocklab, Ema will now be looking forward to the production of her track at Rockhalstudio in autumn in order to transform her initial idea into a finished song. A video shoot will follow, before the song will be locally broadcast and released during a concert at the Rockhal.
