Live concerts, real emotions - Showtime!

Join us as A-ROSA creates history on our Rhine & Danube cruise ships.  Discover talented charismatic new singer songwriters and learn about the inspiration for their songs, all in the intimate setting of two onboard evening concerts. Casting for A-ROSA's "Showtime" competition, in co-operation with Rolling Stone Magazine, SofaConcerts and TV Noir, will finish in early December.  Successful artists, writing and performing original songs, will then perform on all 7 night cruises on the Danube and Rhein between April and October 2020.

Chosen by A-ROSA guests for A-ROSA guests!

Be part of the competition.  As a guests on board our Rhine & Danube ships you will not only be able to experience live performances, but be a member of the judging panel.  After each evening performance you will be invited to cast your vote and shape the future of our budding singer songwriters.  The ten semifinalists, chosen by our guests, will each receive a cash prize of 2,500 Euro.  More importantly they will have the option to return and perform regularly on A-ROSA ships in 2021.  Our goal is to let you decide who will entertains us in 2021. Between the 18th and 25th of October there will be a grand finale on the Rhine where guests will vote for their favourite artist, whilst the A-ROSA expert jury will choose the winner of the A-ROSA Singer-Songwriter-Contest “Showtime” 2020

Which singersongwriter will win the prize money of 40,000 Euros?

An application for the singer-songwriter contest was possible until 02.12.2019. Successful artists, selected by our expert jury, will be compensated for their time and have the opportunity to participate in two 7 night cruises on the Rhine and Danube.  Our guests will choose ten semifinalists who will receive a cash prize of 2,500 Euro for each act.  The semifinalists will also have the opportunity to perform regularly on A-ROSA ships in 2021. 

The grand final will be hosted on a cruise between the 18th and 25th of October on the Rhine.  A-ROSA guests will vote on the audience choice award and 5,000 Euro.  Our expert jury will choose a winner, who will receive a prize of 40,000 Euro as well as the opportunity to perform at the International Music Award 2020 in Berlin.

Good luck to all the participants!

The focus of this new award ceremony, hosted by Rolling Stone magazine, is on passion, innovation, and attitude, as well as the sounds and faces of the future.  Winners will be rewarded for engagement and innovation, not just sales number, and will be chosen by a panel of international artists, music experts and renowned journalists. Nationally and internationally famous artists will perform during the glittering ceremony.
