The competitors performed in a studio, with the concerts being broadcast in live streaming. For the final classification, data from live viewing, the votes of a jury composed of four members and the general public were counted. After the pandemic, the concept evolved and the Festival began to be co-organized with the Municipality of Soure. The dimension of a national music competition, open to the participation of solo or group projects, with original compositions, was joined by the live performance of the four finalists. And the monetary prizes with a total value of three thousand euros remained.!
