    Jungle Bands Benefits

1. A special full article on every Jungle Band will be posted on our website.

2. Jungle Bands will enter a tutorized program to prepare the group’s music career. The content of this program depends on the needs of the participants, including work registries with music societies, record label or agency contracts, blogs and festival submissions, etc.

3. Jungle Bands’ work will be promoted on our website, blogs, and social media.

4. Jungle Bands’ new releases (from any edition) have preference over the rest of the content of the site. Your new music should be posted right away or as soon as we can.

5. At the end of the program, we will choose the Jungle Band of the year, selected by a group of relevant music experts.

6. All Jungle Bands will receive a certified Jungle Bands Badget.

7. Once you become a Jungle Band, we will be always there for you, even if your edition is over. We will advise you and help with whatever is in our hands.

8. Every Jungle Band can participate in any of our other projects.

    End Of The Project

Since we started Jungle Bands in 2010, 45 groups formed part of our project up to 2020. This relationship has not an expiration date and we try to keep the contact with everyone.

In any case, you can finish your participation at any time. If you decide so, we will stop promoting your next releases if you request us to do it, but we won’t remove our previous articles. This happened just once, with a brilliant electronic music producer who decided to remove all his previous work and start a new career in classical music. We miss him, but we respect his decision and we are very proud of him.

Sometimes, bands split and their members start a new music project. These new bands can join The Jungle Bands Project in the next edition without going through the application process again. We would simply evaluate the new group and add it as an extra participant.

However, pre-existing Jungle Bands side or solo projects must apply like any other artist to join.
