Hello!

Welcome to the WorldVision Song Contest, based on the Eurovision Song Contest, aiming to provide and unite nations from different parts of the World through music. The WorldVision Song contest is an outlet to showcase the popular or native music of your nation. As with every contest, there are a few simple rules and regulations that you'll need to follow. If you're new, continue on to the FAQ/Guide To WorldVision! If you are simply looking for the rules, look no further than the box below:

As it was introduced prior to the start of '79, the same strike system for punishments will be in effect, where players breaking certain contest rules will receive strikes depending on the severity.

    • One Strike: No immediate consequences;
    • Two Strikes: One-contest ban;
    • Three Strikes: Two-contest ban.
  • Strikes expire after five editions; however, a strike expiring during a ban does not edit or shorten it.
  • Bans stack; that is, a nation reaching three strikes within one edition is immediately banned for the following three editions.
  • Bans erase strikes once they are completed.

    Here are the following issues that can net you a strike:

    One strike:
    • Not voting in the contest (will also disqualify a contestant from competing)
    • Changing votes without Worldvision Committee supervision.
    • Posting halftime results when not the host or WVC & refusing to remove results (which also results in disqualification)
    • Posting an incomplete entry.
    • Not declaring a new puppet, or when transferring ownership of a puppet.

    Two strikes:
    • Engaging in tactical voting.
    • Intentionally refusing to vote.
    • Attempts to evade a ban.
    • Entering more than one puppet in the contest.


FAQ / Guide To WorldVision


I'm new here, how does this all work?

Welcome! Here at WorldVision, we write our own lyrics to existing songs, then vote on them! Many of us write performances and background information on the performer as well. This contest is based heavily on the Eurovision Song Contest, so it helps a lot if you're familiar with it! One major difference from it is that the winner doesn't host the next contest- here we have people bid each edition to host the next contest.

That sounds fun! How do I sign up?

Signing up is simple! You can fill out and post the application below, or simply state your interest in joining. If you do use the application, you don't need to fill everything in.

Code: Select all
[b]Nation Name:[/b] Your nation's name goes here.
[b]Official Broadcaster:[/b] Your official broadcaster for WV goes here.
[b]Song Title:[/b] The IC Song title goes here.
[b]Artist(s) Name(s):[/b] The name of your act goes here.

[b]Tune:[/b] The real-life tune you're basing your song on goes here.


This is all so exciting! I want to host!

In order to host, you need to have fully participated once, especially to get the feel of how the contest runs. While you wait, you can look at current bids to learn how good bids look like. If you've signed up before host voting has begun, then you can vote for the host! Once you've finished a contest, you can bid and even vote for host, as long as you don't vote for your own.

How do I write an entry?

Writing an entry is just a bit more work than Alexander Rybak makes it seem. Most of us use an existing song as a tune, which we usually link through YouTube, and rewrite the lyrics so that they are original- which means that we wrote them ourselves and did not copy the real lyrics (at least 80% should be your own, which is generally easy if you write your own). Translating real lyrics does not count!

To do well, it's best to write a performance and choose a tune that hasn't been used before - don't be afraid to ask us if you're unsure! In addition, it's always good to look at past contests and learn from the winners and highest placed entries.

If you do post a reservation/placeholder post for your entry, please make sure that you finish it with a completed set of lyrics. If you don't finish, or if you don't withdraw on the OOC thread, you will receive a strike, which is explained in the spoiler below this section.

So what comes next? Voting?

Yes, that's right! After the entry deadline, you cannot edit your entry without permission from the Committee. After the host posts the interval act and opens voting, you may post your votes. Just like in Eurovision, you give 12 points to your favorite entry, then 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and finally 1 point to your next favorite. Please vote on time!! The host may choose to close voting after the deadline, but if you do not vote on time you will be disqualified.

Next, you do the televote. Here, it means that you open the form that is linked by the host, and rank each entry from 1 to 10, with 1 being worst and 10 being best. Ever since the official implementation of the televote in WV83, everyone's televotes will be revealed by the Committee, so you can see the full breakdown after the contest ends.

This sounds awesome! I want to enter a puppet nation and write more entries!

You can do that! You may enter a second nation, but make sure you confirm that it is yours in the signups! However with great power comes great responsibility: you can only give a maximum of 5 points to yourself, and together with your main nation you can only give a maximum of 18 points to another nation.

I do not feel safe or welcome here. What do I do?

If you are bullied, harassed, intimidated/etc by someone within the contest, please contact the Committee or one of its members, and we will ensure confidentiality and analyze the situation. We will deal punishment as deemed appropriate depending on the severity of the offense.

I have more questions! Who do I ask?

If you have more questions you can ask in the thread, join the Discord server linked at the top of this post, or TG the WorldVision Committee. The Discord server is probably where you are going to get the fastest reply.


So basically, be original, try to be fair, don't be a jerk, and have fun. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to TG the Committee - it helps if you add the Committee's individual member names (Axuva, Besen, Ertzei Kishim, Izmedu, Todlichebujoku) in the "To:" box along with "WorldVision Committee" for a faster response. DM on Discord also works!

Even if you've missed the deadline or aren't participating, feel free to discuss the contest in this thread or post commentary in the IC. You'll find that we all greatly appreciate some good commentary.

With all that said, welcome to WorldVision!

Hello guys, Lez here.

Thank you for your support last edition. I'm very grateful for the second place I earn, my best result after my debut.
However, there's still a long way to go for Worldvision Glory.
So, since Alezimania has been proven successful (honestly, I thought it would flop lol), The national contest returns after the first season and will probably be used for more editions to come, yay!

Other than these 6 regions voting, I need your lovely help to vote for who is the best to represent North Alezia in both Worldvision and World Hit Festival. And there's no denying that some tunes might make it later on the long future.

This time and later on, North Alezia picked BOTH the entries for both Worldvision and World Hit Festival using this NF. The winner will go to Worldvision, and the runner up will go to World Hit Festival.

In order to cast your vote:

Vote 5,6,7,8,10,and 12 to your favorites. 12 to your most favorite, 5 for your least favorite.
After you decide, vote by TG or by DM on my discord, HowDidIGetHere?#5211
Cast your vote by writing your points, then write the region you want to give your points to. For example
XX pts-Basna
XX pts-Zafizamarrah
etc.
You can also vote with the artists name, or songs name, or using all of them!

You can vote until next week (5th of August 2020) around 17:00 PM WITA or around 10:30 AM BST on the same day. If the number of voters are not enough, the deadline will be lengthened by a day.

Thank you, and have a nice day/night

Tesero set to return to the Worldvision stage at the 84th contest

Image


After performing in St. Christopher for Estana and Thaos at the 83rd Worldvision Song Contest, Tesero are now set to return again to the stage again, where they will perform a brand new song for the world - after capturing the hearts of many at the last edition. It's currently unknown which direction they will go in for their next venture, but they have high hopes for themselves and are extremely happy with what they had achieved in St. Christopher. Being interviewed at the airport after returning home, Mila remarked:

"We're so happy with what we did just now - and hopefully we made you guys at home proud and such... Here's to another one!"

Soon, the world will be able to hear their new song for Worldvision, and maybe they'll even strike gold this time? Who knows! As Mila said, here's to another one...

(I'll probably do a logo for the next one)


Following the 83rd WorldVision Song Contest in St. Christopher, Llalta, ETV announced the return of ElejamieVision to decide who'll be representing the nation at the 84th contest. After a period of music experts whittling down the competition, we are now left with five songs that you, the multiverse, will decide who will be the lucky one to travel over to wherever the next contest will be held, as well as the lucky runner-up to represent us at the 85th contest. For the international juries who wish to participate, as well as the viewing public at home in one of our twenty tracts whose votes will be added at the very end, your five choices are:

1. Lisa Park and her Gang - Love in the Afternoon
(Junko Ohashi - Telephone Number)

2. Antonia - Love Hotel
(Anri - Last Summer Whisper)

3. Paige Brennan - Coffee and Cake
(Tomoko Aran - I'm In Love)

4. Dave Owens - In The End
(Tatsuro Yamashita - Ride on Time)

5. Lucía Beltrán - Wish
(Miki Matsubara - Wash)

For the international juries: Simply TG me (or DM me on Discord) your votes. You give five points to your favourite entry, four to your second favourite, three to your third favourite, two to your fourth favourite and, finally, one point to your least favourite. You can use the IC artist and song names or OOC ones, it won't affect your votes at all. Deadline will be 5th August, 2020 at 00:00 BST (7pm on 4th August EST). Results will probably be revealed in the afternoon the following day.

For the viewing public at home: The IC-side of things ended a while ago but I'm going to re-iterate because it'd be weird to talk to yourself in public. I'm also going to pre-confirm Placely Placington, even though we all know it's mine, because quite frankly I'm too used to it due to spending so many years in NS Sports. Besides, it's mostly going to be a tie-breaker at best or just an excuse to expand whoever's leading at worst. Also, just a quick heads-up, I'm set to move sometime soon which might affect me participating; I'm still hoping to get my entry up and posted and everything but this is just a warning if I do end up not participating.

Not only unnecessarily confirming puppetry but also confirming that, because of the move, Placely Placington's potential bid has been suspended. It'll still come but probably not for another edition or two. Meanwhile, let's see what song Dave McDaverson decided to give us:

Nation Name: Placely Placington
Official Broadcaster: Wait, We Have A Broadcaster?
Song Title: Ek is lief vir jou
Artist(s) Name(s): Jim the Grindcore Guy Bloke

Tune: CBT - Heterosexual Testosterone Compressor

"Welcome to Izmepisma. 9 songs have been chosen out of a field of hundreds waiting for their shot at Izmedu's WorldVision baton, but only one song can remain standing."

After a tense voting sequence, Grupa Pisma-Ptisera came 11th. While this represents Izmedu's first fall out of the top 10 since WV75, Izmedu moves forward with another edition of its national final. With the advent of Izmedu's 50th anniversary in the contest, RTI wanted to celebrate Izmedu's past styles one last time. As WorldVision is entering a new era, RTI thought it be appropriate to have one last celebration of the past before heading towards a new future.

With a closed industry call, about 150 songs from Izmedu's greats to smaller artists were sent to the channel. RTI had an expressed desire for the songs to not only represent Izmedu's old styles, but also wanted the Izmeduan language to have its limelight in the national final as well. To that end, close to 90% of the final submissions were sent in the national language. Alongside that, there was a higher concentration of Izmeduan folkpop, folk ballads, and even klapa being sent to RTI. Of course, RTI had to balance representing local styles with something that was worthy of being sent to an international song contest. With only 18 spots available, alongside a cognizant push for fresher music styles, RTI had to make difficult cuts and turn away many domestic stars. After two semi-final televoting rounds and a second chance round, 9 songs now stand before you, ready for your votes.

THE BID IS UP! I REPEAT THE BID FOR MAIN NATION MINISTRY IS UP, BOYS!

Main Nation Ministry's Bid for WorldVision 84!

And the clocks shall strike thirteen..


Image

Welcome back to the Ministry, WorldVision.

STATEMENT FOR OUR HOST

We have been radio silent for too long. Hadn't we?

I know. It's been a while, hasn't it. Some people might have forget, but people like us don't forget so easily ourselves.

This is Jessica Madden speaking. I'm here, because while Main Nation Ministry has been absent for a while now from WorldVision, we have been planning on stuff on our own. And who's the genius that wants me to help?

"Ughhhh...Damn it, Jessica.."

The Leader of all people. I know I should be dead for doing this, but the Leader wants me to go through the process of this bid. Especially since we both are contributing ideas to this, while I host.

"The overall gimmick is going to focus on a year that really I cannot reveal, since history has been wiped from our records, along with the fact that any mention of it would lead to us killing people who hears this information that has been expunged. However, we researched the year in some other nations that we wouldn't reveal, but we using the elements for our bid. Which I given this information to one of the people that I hate and despise the most."

Don't worry, sweetie. So I took this information, where I managed to find a way to make things interesting. Since I found said information interesting and knew that the Leader was really to let me introduce some criticism of some people, like myself. And to help him, I showed him my plans until he was ok with them. Since he had control over the censors, he removed some of these censors, which were more or less effective with the bid.

"Well. I guess I'm happy. But here's our bid!"

There you go, Leader!

ABOUT US

What is our plan for WorldVision 84?

We making it like 1984.

While the year is an enigma to us. Our bid is going to center around several main themes. The first theme shall deal with the flow of pop culture that made the year memorable, where the second theme shall be a satire against Main Nation Ministry and the concept of dictatorships themselves, focusing on some minor themes of rebellion, the advancements of technology, and the desire to go out of the norm that many people follow along with.

We want to make the viewers and musicians/artist feel like they are back in the 80's. Nekoni did the idea first, but we really want to add up on this idea by showing the importance of the year that many tend to relate to, while adding a bit of a loose satirical story to tie things together. Also, since we are have the 1980s theme in Main Nation Ministry, why not do a little publicity tour and make some interesting changes around the nation?
- The National Musuem of Truth will open up a special expansion to the space exhibit, which will show technology of space travel in its earlier stages.
- Some of our top clothing stores will promote 80s clothing, generally around the year of 1984. You can wear fake shadow fox coat (since we respect some animals) and men can wear their fancy game watches!
- You can get a Erector Robot at the Little Green Men toy store in Victory Square!

THE VENUE

We want to give the artists and musicians an experience like no other. While our past bids were very elaborate and extremely unique, we would say.

Image

Jessica Madden wants to bring the experience to Victory Square, where the venue will be within the Victory Stadium within the heart of Main Nation Ministry. The Victory Stadium is best known for both football and soccer tournaments, where there is enough seatings to bring in hundreds, if not thousands, or better yet almost half a million people from all reaches of the multiverse! While researching, Madden wants to base the concert to give participants some creative control as usual, while making the venue a tribute to concerts, specificially those of benefit or charity concerts, around the 80s. (OOC-wise, similar to Band and Live Aid).

To symbolize the participation of nations around the world and multiverse, at the back center of the stage is a large hollow globe with a LED screen ring from front and behind the ring. This can be used to display the name of a nation or some other fun effects. There's two wings of LED screens which are primarily used for showing the postcard of each nation, along with showing other forms of videos or backgrounds to help with a performance.

We have a large arch-shaped catwalk for which your performances can be on, rather than the main stage. Another thing of interest is the large pit in between the catwalk and the main stage, which can be used for adding audiences or can even be used as a mosh pit. For pyrotechnics, performances are allowed to use sparks, fire, bubbles, water, confetti, and we have set up a major firework launcher module at the back of the stage to be used, if performances are interested!

OOC: With opening and closing artists, performing in the style of Sebastian Böhm & New Order with Blue Monday, The Go-Go's with Head Over Heels, and Tally Hall with Good Day!

REGARDING AIRBORNE ILLNESSES OR FLUS

This is the Leader here to address the controversy, regarding the situation in several nations that may or may not attend WorldVision. Health is an important part of the human body and a part of our nation. While we understand the whole "show must go on" approach for some nations that are undergoing a heavy wave of infectious flus or viruses in their country or nation, we do not wish to have any of this sickness into our nation. It took us so much wasted money to research cures in our Ministry of Science, so we're not going to have start any lockdowns on any outbreak in our nation, until a cure is made, unless one would follow these rules..

First off.. WASH YOUR F#@$ING HANDS! Ahem. Yes, please wash your hands with proper hygenie. Second, if you believe that you yourself are sick with any sign of illness, we recommend that you don't attend. There are plenty of livestreams and broadcasting that will present a HD 60 frames per second experience online and on television. For people arriving to the stadium on foot, we have set up heavy security at both the airport and the front of the stadium to prevent terrorism and the spread of illnesses. It's extensive, but it's to protect you and others.

Third...and this...is my favorite part. Failure to obey any safety protocols, arriving sick without a face mask, being delusional enough to not believe in health, or believing that there is nothing wrong with spreading an illness you have will all lead to extreme prejudice. Don't try to mess with us at security. We will cleanse the illnesses that try to overwhelm this nation..


Image

POSTCARD

Here's the official postcard for WV84! A nice retro image for your nation and your flag!

Image

So, please. Vote for us, if you want an unforgetable experience. Also, OOC-wise. If it helps. I know how to cite pages, so things don't appear unfinished. Also, it will be easy for me to do postcards, so that's another reason. Who doesn't want their name on a postcard?

COMMERCIAL

The commercial starts by showing a sunny beachside road, where a vintage DeLorean is parked on the side of the road. Sitting on the hood, observing the ocean is Jessica Madden, the host of the bid, wearing some Ray-Bans as the sun above starts to appear almost digitized, turning into a neon outline. As the overall environment starts changing into a neon wonderland, Jessica starts addressing the viewers. "I know we're deemed crazy over here in Main Nation Ministry, but I'm here with a special offer for WorldVision 84. What if I could give you a trip of nostalgia to a year that changed culture and the whole multiverse forever?" After the background finishes changing, the scene cuts to the front of the Victory Square stadium, where Jessica lifts the glasses from her eyes, where she gave a smile.

"I can tell you one thing. A lot of things look good in neon."

Jessica opens and lifts up the door to the driver's seat of the car, as she starts driving towards the stadium. "Celebrate WorldVision 84 like it's 1984. Vote for Main Nation Ministry for WV84!" a narrator immediately addresses to the viewers, while showing info on how to vote.

WorldVision Song Contest 84
Valletta, Malta Comino Gozo


MCG 1 would like to welcome you all back to the terrific city of Valletta, the stunning beautiful capital city of the Kingdom of Malta Comino Gozo. MCG 1 successfully hosted the 78th addition of the Worldvision Song Contest. Malta Comino Gozo has established itself as a successful nation at the Worldvision, hosting its first contest after only two editions of competing as well as achieving five top ten placings.



Paint your own music is based on Malta Comino Gozoan culture, the culture is generally considered to be a mix of influences brought to the islands by the various characters it has seen come and go over many centuries. Deeply devout Christians but ready to have a party at any hour of the day,a stunning Mediterranean cuisine, as well as some of the sweetest people you could ever meet. All these combine into a melting pot of cultures which make up this unique culture just like colours on a paint board. Each colour blends and mixes with each other. The islands are famous for their brightly coloured facades and balconies which adorn the sun kissed limestone buildings. Many cultural festivals throughout the year involve hundreds of nationwide paint fights, where different villages and towns meet in a "war" of paint, throwing their various village flag colours at the opposition resulting in a bright coloured display of unity and fun! Each postcard will reflect this with various paint splats representing the countries colours. These small yet stunning islands boast some of the worlds best cultural and historical sights.




Valletta is the financial heart and cultural heart of MCG. The city serves as a meeting point between old and new. It is home to the seat of government for the entire country, contrary to popular belief, the King does not live in Valletta, he and his family reside in Hafna Palace in the town of Runbett. They do have a palace at Maxket House in Valletta which they split their time between.Valletta proper is split into two distinct areas, Valletta old town which dates back to 1455, with hidden gems on every street. Boasting Palaces to beautiful government buildings, to sun washed gardens to its famous city walls, stunning cathedrals, baroque architecture and winding back alleys, and Valleta Downtown, the new modern purpose built financial heart of the capital, home to the MCG Mall and Casino, Valletta Clock tower, Valletta Yacht Club and its breathtaking sea front district on Victoria Street. Layfayette Park is a newer district incorparted into Valletta Metropolitan area in 2008 is home to the CBD. Malta Comino Gozo has a population of 495,559 of which nearly 130,000 live in and around the Valletta Metropolitan area making it the biggest urban area in the country. The city is mostly made up of around 95% ethnic Malta Comino Gozoans but is home to a small number of Polkopian and Elejamians. Malta Comino Gozoans are a welcoming and warm people, though speaking quietly isn't an option. While this may come across as shouting it is just the way they speak and no harm is meant by this. Smile at any Malta Comino Gozoan and expect a huge smile and wave back. Maltese is the official language as well as English, so don't threat, you will have no trouble getting around the islands.


Image
Image
As the largest metropolitan area in Malta Comino Gozo, the city serves as a beating hub for history, culture and creativity. “Paint Your Own Music” encapsulates Valletta perfectly. With the city's beautiful golden sandy beaches, historical old town, fine Mediterranean cuisine, and some of the worlds best nightlife, there’s always something to see and do. Old or young you'll fall in love with this fine place.

Valletta as the cultural hub of the country is also the transport hub. Every road leads back to Valletta and the public transport is no exception. Catch a passenger ferry from Valletta Marina to the Main Harbour Town of Dahlet-Marsa Gozo every hour and from there onto the tiny un-spoilt island of Comino and its port, home to only 300 inhabitants. Famous for its large sandy beaches, crystal clear water and wild forests. Ferries leave every 20 minutes. Gozo and Comino are much more rural than the main Island and should not be missed. Gozo with its stunning rolling hills, forests, beautiful hilltop villages. Dahlet-Marsa is a quaint harbour town with a beautiful sea front and thriving fishing industry and excellent night life and Cittadel is a 15th century walled fortress town overlooking the entire island. The port of Ghaxrin (Ash-reen) also offers a passenger ferry shuttle to and from Valletta only.

Image

Gozo can only be reached by car if you journey on the ferry but it can also be reached by train. Valletta has two main stations Victoria Street, in Downtown and Valletta East situated outside the old city walls. Trains shuttle from Mosatra in the west all the way Cittadel in Gozo. Trains from Valletta to Cittadel take around 30 mins and leave every 15 mins. Valletta to Mosatra takes 20 mins. You can really explore the entire country and be back in the capital for dinner time.

Accommodation in Valletta

Each delegation will have the option of staying in two of the best accommodations the country has to offer. Both award winning Hotels are located in Valletta downtown, the elegant 5 star Lukanda Valletta built in 1862 with its low relief sculptures, marble colonnades and crystal chandeliers combine to create a sense of awe-inspiring solemnity that makes this such a memorable destination. The hotel has 99 rooms divided into four groups based on type of view, decoration and luxury. The Exclusive City View offers 20 rooms, the Superior Courtyard has 29 large rooms, the Exclusive Sea View has 59 and the Exclusive Casino has six. Additionally there are 83 suites and junior suites which are grouped similarly, offering more luxury than the regular rooms. There is also a world-famous rotisserie and sliding rooftop. An à la carte breakfast is served daily in the private gardens. The amazing hotel is the place mingle with the glitzy glam of MCG, enjoy live music, and savor original, timeless cocktails.

The Marriott Hotel & Spa is a 5-star hotel on the grounds of a 19th-century Villa. It combines luxurious charm and the relaxed feel of a Mediterranean spa, with well-appointed premium category rooms and luxury suites. With five rooftop swimming pools and five diverse restaurants and three bars, the hotel has something for every palate. Both hotels are situated a short walk from Valletta Victoria Street Station.

The Stadium

Image
The venue is the Fed- Ex Forum arena in the heart of Downtown Valletta,just outside Lafayette Park. Built in 2002 it is the largest arena in the country, it is currently used as an indoor entertainment venue for both concerts and sports.

The Stage
Image
The Stage
The Stage
Stage in action

The stage has been designed by famous Malta Comino Gozoan designer Lukas Emon. “It’s a very flexible and easy to use stage, its large High Resolution LED background and high resolution floor offer groundbreaking graphics and are the blank canvas on which the delegations can paint and tell their story”. The stage will sit at the back of the arena with the audience to the left right and centre of the stage. The stage is a kite shape in shape, with diagonal jagged edges. The very tip of the stage juts out right into the audience and acts as a kind of catwalk from the main square shaped stage. There is also a VIP Fan area for fans nestled in between the stage and the rest of the audience. It offers a 7m high and 20m wide, high resolution LED wall, which is which also hugs the back of the stage adjacent to the angles of the floor. The state of the art high resolution graphics add exceptionally detailed and high quality LED backgrounds and images to create crisp, neat and breathtaking backdrops. The huge stage brings spectators up nice and close to the acts.
There are two stage doors for “on and off” access. The huge detached LED screen frame suspended above the stage,offers great contrast if artists want to add a depth of colour or projections to the performance. The Frame also consists of 50 spotlights that can be raised and lowered for each performance to add more dramatics and character to each song.The stage has been fitted with state of the art, mist, pyro's, wind fans and smoke machines. Pyro's have also been fitted to the top frame for any curtains water or fireworks that artists may want to use. Along with this, there are smoke jets and spotlights surrounding the outer rims of the stage.


Other Specifications include
3000 lights – of which 730 are LED-lights
Over 2000 light-cues
Over 1200 m2 of LED screens
46 people are working in the lighting production
14 spotlights, manually operated from a height of 24 metres

Downtown Valletta where the The Fed-Ex Arena is located is a hub of activity with dozens of restaurants nearby from nationalities from all over the Multiverse. Downtown Valletta was purpose built in 1908 as a surge in population and investment meant the small tiny walled capital with its increasing population of over 8,000 needed more space. The walled city which is a UNESCO world heritage sight could not be tampered with therefore a new plan at the time was drawn up to build the new Downtown of the city, complete with wide, tree filled boulevards, luxurious promenades, huge open spaces and plaza's as well as hundreds of new business's offices and apartments to house the growing population. The new Downtown took 2 years to build and is built in a grid style for easy navigation. Famous landmarks include MCG1 Broadcasting House, Valletta Central Clock,The MCG Mall and the National Library. The new area of the city has expanded ever since with new builds built every year.

Graphics

The Slogan " Paint Your Own Music" is around the idea that every artists is a painter and their song and performance is their canvas to do what they like. For such a cultural nation we feel this tagline encapsulates all of Malta Comino Gozo in all its forms as mentioned before. Each countries postcard will have a painted version of their flags colours splattered on to them to make it stand out from each other as well as too look like it was painted by the Singers, as well as keeping the modern abstract colours in the background. The amazing Opening Act and Interval Act will include some of the biggest Names in MCG and the multiverse. GET READY TO PARTY!
