The contest

The main event of the So La La Festival, the So La La Contest, is primarily intended to be a festival of vocal music in which the  Audience floats in the 7th a cappella heaven. ; o) Six top-class bands and a "best of" from their current programs in just one evening - that stands for variety and a musical journey across all genres.

In order to create an additional incentive for the five participating groups (the winner of the previous year starts out of competition), it is also about the sausage for them.


In the evening itself, it is now particularly important to catch the favor of the audience.

Tickets for the next contest are available  HERE .
