The awards ceremony will take place on 14th September 2013 as the final highlight of the YEAH! Festival (6th – 14th September) in Osnabrück. The festival complements the competition as a valuable opportunity to put young, contemporary concert formats in the spotlight. Musicians and ensembles from all over Europe will show regional and international audiences that it’s worth rethinking how music is presented and put Osnabrück at the centre of European music communication.

The reaction to the announcement of the YEAH! Award 2011 was resounding, with 170 applications from 30 countries. 15 nominations and five winners were then presented at the 1st YEAH! Festival in November 2011. A lively feast of music with positive feedback both in professional circles and from the citizens of Osnabrück. Good reason for the Stahlwerk Georgmarienhütte Trust to once again sponsor the competition. In future, the competition for the YEAH! Young EARopean Award will take place every two years.

The YEAH! Young EARopean Award is a project of the Stahlwerk Georgsmarienhütte Trust and the netzwerk junge ohren e.V.
