Your Sound - Your Lyrics - Your Song

Write songs yourself, tinker with lyrics, create compositions! SONGS - the songwriting competition in cooperation with the Stiftung Bildung und Soziales of the Sparda Bank Baden-Württemberg celebrates its fifth birthday and gives young songwriters the chance to be on stage with their song.

The participants can apply solo or as a band - also in cooperation with their teachers and pedagogical specialists - with their strongest song. The best ideas will be rewarded with attractive prizes!

For the musical equipment of the schools and youth centres there is prize money with a total value of 10,000 € to be won. In addition, the winners will receive professional coaching at the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.

The application phase for SONGS 2020 is now over.

Our jury
  • Prof. Udo Dahmen - Artistic Director and Managing Director of the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg & Vice President German Music Council
  • Andreas Küchle - Head of Marketing at Sparda-Bank Baden-Württemberg
  • Michelle Leonard - Songwriter (BMG), Artist (Solamay), Publisher (Edition Dolsira, Universal Music Publishing)
  • Nadime Romdhane - Deputy head of music bigFM
  • MINE - artist
has examined the entries and determined the line-up for the SONGS Final.

All applicants have been informed by e-mail.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the "Lockdown-Light" the concert has to be postponed again. The new date will be the 05.02.2021.

We would like to have the concert hybrid, i.e. live and digital, if possible. The hygiene concept of the SpardaWelt event centre provides for a certain visitor capacity, which we must strictly monitor. To what extent this is possible must be decided depending on the situation.
We kindly ask for your understanding!

All those remaining at home can follow the concert on our YouTube channel via livestream.

Stay tuned!
