Radio Proglas Welcome Scene is one of the festival specialities; the performers for this scene are selected in an audition. Radio Proglas Welcome Scene is a great opportunity not only for young and up-and-coming musicians, but also for professional and established artists. The scene draws attention of music dramaturges and journalists, which means that musicians performing on the Radio Proglas Welcome Scene often get an offer for their next concert.
Hradecký Slunovrat 2022 will feature 10 artists selected in the audition (Radio Proglas music editor Milan Tesař will select 9 of the performers, the festival dramaturge Zdenek Svánovský will pick one performer as a “wild card”).
One of the artists performing on Radio Proglas Welcome Scene in 2022 will be selected to perform on one of the main festival stages in 2023.
All the selected artists will get the opportunity to present their music on Radio Proglas. They will give a concert or an interview in the programme called “As You Like It” and at www.hudbenirozhovory.cz.
