TWMC received a total of 24 applications, of which 20 were evaluated. We were unable to find a reviewer for 4 of the festivals. We have identified one of our aspects to improve for the second edition and we’ll do our best to evaluate all the applicants in the second edition, for which the application is already open in our website.

For the first edition, the assessment was made mainly by our own panelists. 2 independent evaluators collaborated specifically on this role. In total, 15 evaluators have participated in this first edition.

The results show the high level of many of the applicants in the criteria and the distance between them is really small. In order to recognize the superb quality of many of the applicants, we’ve decide to publish the top 3 in the different categories, as well as the global top 10.

The Transglobal World Music Chart Festival Awards were launched as part of our goal to increase the appreciation of the music from the cultures of the world, as a tool for the development of people in many areas of life, as well as for joy and pleasure. Find here the procedure, criteria and application form to start the procedure.

Aside from highlighting the value of the winners in the four categories, congratulating the two festivals tied in the 1st position for their excellence, we want to praise several festivals beyond the concerts program: Urkult, as a superb inspiring example in many of the criteria (Festival-goer experience, Logistics, Environmental responsibility and Social responsibility); Ethnoport Poznan’s program beyond the concerts, with “Listen to the world”, workshops, cinema, activities for children, active support for activist humanitarian organizations… merit the attention by itself; World Music Festival Bratislava that is carefully shaping the image of the music landscape of their country for the rest of the world; Cordas World Music Festival, an authentic challenge by reason of its location, that provides thrilling experiences added to the music relish; Fira Mediterrània de Manresa, boosting the local scene as well as providing unique experiences for the public; Rainforest World Music Festival’s huge vision for gathering the strengths to create such an immersive event; Førdefestivalen’s understanding of diversity in all of its meanings; and Lowell Folk’s explorer approach and highlighting traditions from across the US and around the world trusting in many unknown artists.

Thank you all, teams of the applicant festivals, and thanks to the evaluators. Application for the 2nd edition is open.

• Best Large Festival Award
• Best Newcomer Festival Award
