Creative Competition: €1,000 for the Gig of Your Dreams


Imagine you could gig anywhere… That’s hard to think of in the current pandemic situation. But JBL Professional has just developed a new ultra-portable PA system with outstanding sound quality that could solve the problem – the EON ONE Compact which we have already reported on here. In order to support music makers during the crisis, we are cooperating with JBL Professional in the search for pandemic-compliant performance opportunities and are giving away this excellent product worth €1,800, organising the video shoot and paying €1,000 fixed fee.

Artist playing outdoors with the JBL EON ONE Compact

The best idea wins the JBL EON ONE Compact PA system along with all standard cables, a Soundcraft Signature 12MTK mixer and 2 AKG D5 Microphones worth over €1,800 (value based on RRP of relevant products). Applications closing on 4th April 2021, 23:59 CEST.

How Your Idea Wins

Together with JBL Professional, we seek alternative venues where normally no sound systems are installed. Performing in the great outdoors is, of course, possible with the JBL EON ONE Compact, as with it you don’t need a regular power supply. Also conceivable are performances in the mountains, on a shop roof, on a boat, in the forest, from a trailer … – maybe there is something you always wanted to do, which is now possible? Please let us know!

Of course, it is nice when there is an audience too. Then make sure that you don’t expose your fans to any additional risk of infection. No legal violations are allowed. You can find ideas for social distancing concerts here and safety tips here.

Someone who has already realised the power of JBL equipment is Jonas Skielboe from VeloConcerts. Travelling by bicycle, doubling as a stage and using similar products from JBL, AKG, and Soundcraft, his band has performed by the sea and at various other remote locations. The rock band DAILY THOMPSON won this PA too and did this…
