YAMsession and the hosting partners cover all the local expenses for the showcase artists on the day of the performance (accommodation, meals) 6. YAMsession offers free participation in the entire YAMsession event for all showcasing productions. 7. Showcases should provide the production technical rider & stage plan at the time of the application. 8. Productions may contact their local JMI members ( or government agencies for potential support. NB: Please note that applying for a YAMsession showcase is not equivalent to submitting a YAMawards application, which must be made separately. Here is what Rune Thorsteinsson from Body Rhythm Factory (Denmark) had to say about performing at YAMsession "Being part of the YAMsession was a great experience! We got a lot of concert requests on that account - more than we can actually play, so that was really positive. I can highly recommend a trip to wherever the YAMsession is taking place! It's a great event and a great show window for young audience musicians." If you have any questions, please get in touch with More information on the YAMsession is available at
