Amarte Studio Concerts

Attention up-and-coming talent: a new application round for Amarte Studio Concerts will start from July 18th to August 1st. You can apply to perform at one of our locations: De Roode Bioscoop, Studio150/Bethlehemkerk or the Flowriders Studio. An independent jury, consisting of colleagues from the music world, will assess your application.

Schedule

When you apply for a concert at Amarte Studio Concerts, you should take the following schedule into account:

  • The concerts in Studio150/Bethlehemkerk are scheduled between September and December 2022.
  • The concerts in De Roode Bioscoop are scheduled between 13 and 30 October 2022.
  • The concerts in the Flowriders Studio are scheduled for September 2022.

Promotional material

In addition to the concert, we would like to help you with good quality promotional material of your performance:

  • When you choose Studio150/Bethlehemkerk, your entire concert will be recorded and streamed live.
  • De Roode Bioscoop makes a short video recording of some highlights from your concert.
  • The Flowriders Studio makes a studio-quality audio mix and accompanying video of a song from your concert of your choice for you.

Financial contribution

The total contribution depends on the size of the group. A contribution of €300,- is granted per musician without VAT. Keep in mind that you have to withdraw 9% of this in your income declaration.

There is no minimum or maximum number of members per group, however, the budget to be divided is calculated on an average group size of 3 to 5 musicians. If there are many entries consisting of large groups, this may affect the selection of the jury. The number of musicians that make up the group / applicant is determined at the time of application and can not be changed after sending the application. If you will still perform with a different number of group members, you must make this known to the Amarte Foundation and the location where you will perform.

Guidelines

Below we list the general guidelines that we use when assessing the applications.

  • The applicant is a professional musician/artist. This is tested on the basis of your Chamber of Commerce registration.
  • Although there is no age limit to apply, we notice that in practice the emphasis is on young makers.
  • The application is for a concert in the Roode Bioscoop, Studio150/Bethlehemkerk or the Flowriders Studio in collaboration with Steppin’ Into Tomorrow in the period September until December 2022.

Agreements

  • The preferred location will be filled in on the application, however, the location may differ from the pre-selected location if this is appropriate for practical reasons.
  • The date of the performance is determined in consultation with the location. Look above under the heading ‘Schedule’ for the planning per location.
  • The concert is registered for promotional purposes. The artist remains the owner of all rights arising from this at all times and receives the recorded material in consultation with the location after the performance. Each location creates a registration of the performance in its own way. For example, the concerts in Studio150/Bethlehemkerk are recorded live from start to finish, mixed and broadcasted live, while the recordings of the performances in the Roode Bioscoop and the Flowriders Studio are first processed into short films that are only broadcasted after the concert.
  • Each location records the performance in its own way. See above under the heading ‘Promotional material’ how the concerts are registered per location.
  • Amarte Studio Concerts brings the artist into contact with the location when the application has been granted. The artist himself is responsible for a fruitful and good cooperation with the location and the associated aspects. The artist must comply with the directions of the location and is partly responsible for the end result. The better and faster the communication, the better the preparation and the end result.
