Shame on us! With so many artists and songs coming in, we didn't notice at all that in our information one country was not included! Apologies, Romania! you're still a member of the ISF and look forward to your entry this year!
For 2009 we already got the news that the USA is going to take part, but we also got a few more countries that might join. Bulgaria, Hungary, Bolivia, Slovakia, Czech Republic and the UK are coming!!
We have ordered a special logo for both the festival as well as the record label, and we are looking forward to the 3 CD's which will come off the presses this year!
The first CD will be a complimentary CD with all the winners (including 2008) which will ONLY be available for our members/jury members.
The second CD will be a CD including hits from the first 6 years, songs that took part and became big hits.
Finally there will be a CD with only songs from this year's contest. We are busy with licences, negotiations and so on. We are not sure if we can manage to have all songs released (which would mean 76 songs!).
We could however come up with a possibility to download the songs on the internet for free or a small payment.
From this year's 76 countries we have now the names of 74 artists. Only Romania and FYR Macedonia are still missing.
The last news was from Senegal.
Senegal comes with Abass abass
and his song Si Je Parle. (hiphop) You can see the video here at last.fm
