Deadline to submit songs for Finland approaches
Finnish Television, YLE, confirmed that the final of their 2013 national selection, UMK, will take place the 9th of February in the Barona Areena in Espoo. The submission of songs for Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) started the 3rd of September and closes next Sunday the 16th at 16:00.
The Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (UMK) or in English, New Music Competition, looks for Finland's best new songs. UMK is open to all musicians regardless of musical style to contribute their own unpublished demo songs.
Demos are still accepted until Sunday 16th at 16 o'clock. Finland is looking for a song that will make it to the Final in Malmö next May after not reaching this year's Final in Baku with Pernilla's När Jag Blundar, the winner of UMK 2012.
This time the final of UMK won't be in Helsinki but in Espoo's Barona Areena with some 7,000 seats. The selected date is Saturday the 9th of February and tickets for the final will go on sale from the 8th October 2012.
