Macro Live Band Contest: Rapper Chakuza Juries at High Profile Student Event

On June 12, Macromedia University invites to the Macro Live Band Contest at Berlin’s cult venue SO36. Students organized the event as part of their studies - and managed to acquire a star-studded jury.

As one of the leading German schools for music and media management, Macromedia University places great emphasis on the students working on concrete projects. For the past months, a group of Media and Communication Management Bachelor students (5th semester) has been organizing the Macro Live Band Contest as part of their studies. On June 12th, five bands will compete at one of Berlin’s most established music venues, the SO36, for the cheer of the crowd.

Under guidance of Media Management professor Astrid Friese and Music Management expert Matthias Gülzow, the students developed the project from the idea over the event organization and communication strategy to the actual execution in order to attain an understanding of realistic project and event management in the music industry. After receiving transmissions by many upcoming and established artists, they selected the finalists who will present their skills on June 12th.

For judging the musicians’ performances and picking the rightful winners, the students won a star-studded jury: Austrian Rapper Chakuza who had numerous Top 10 albums in Germany and Austria and reached millions of views on YouTube with his provocative songs will surely not shy away from giving his honest opinion. Jasmin Tabatabai, well-known German actress and singer, can contribute her experience from over 25 years in the show business. Last but not least, producer, manager and organizer at the German festival "Emergenza" Matthias Priller will share his expertise from managing countless artist performances at Melt!, Splash or the Berlin Festival.

The first place will win airing time on local Radio Paradiso as well as management, branding and website support by the students, while second and third place will earn a photoshoot and branding support by the future Media Managers.
