The deadline for the National Contest for Young Performers “Burgas and the Sea” has been extended so that every talented person can take part. The final round will be in the summer. The event’s organisers made this decision because it became clear that the participants needed more time to create their original songs and to prepare.

The new deadlines are as follows:

-31st January – Deadline for submission of documents – details on the “Burgas and the Sea” website ( You can participate as a solo, duet, trio, or a group of up to 6 people between the ages of 16 and 33.

-February (the date hasn’t been announced yet) – In-person casting. Every participant will perform one original and one cover song in any language. The 12 teams that have the highest average grade will participate in the final stage in July in the Open-air Theater in Burgas.

-In the final, the singers will sing two songs – one of them will be the same original song performed in the earlier stage. It is acceptable to change up and improve your song before the final. The second one they have to sing is a cover of a song from the fund of the contest “Burgas and the Sea”. The performers and their team have to sign a copyright agreement for the recording of their song and its distribution.

The award fund is up to 10 000 lv., with which the winners will be able to professionally record the song in a studio, and make a video, radio, TV or online advertisement for their song.
