Do you have a music band and want to become famous? We have a contest for you, which could help you to move up. What is in the game? Financial reward, a performance in a sold-out Lucerna Music Bar, possibility to perform at school events, professional feedback and simultaneously you give yourself known in the world of showbiz.

There is a growing demand for the VŠE’s GOT TALENT contest and therefore, we have decided to extend it and add the band contest category. In the spring of 2018 already a third year of the VŠE’s GOT Talent – BAND CONTEST will be organized. You can apply here until Thursday, the 19th of April 2018. The best ones will be selected for the final round, which will take place on Thursday, the 26th of April in the Vencovský Hall at 7 p.m. The winning band will hold a concert in a sold-out Lucerna Music Bar at the occasion of the VŠE Representative Ball. The best three bands will bring home not only valuable prizes, but will gain publicity and could be offered to perform at significant school events or events of VŠE’s partners.

Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us at


You can register for the contest through the registration form until April 19, 2018. Apart from the personal information, it is necessary to include a link to your video. The video must be at least one minute long and the song in the video may be different from the one you are going to perform in case you will be selected. You can send a youtube link or a link to an online data storage from which it will be possible to download the video. It may be your own video clip, a record from your performance, a record from your concert or a video recorded only for the purposes of this contest. Based on the video you provide, a jury will select participants for the final round.

The finals will take place in Vencovský Hall at VŠE and will be open to audience. Your performance during the final round will consist of three different songs, that together should not exceed 12 minutes (in case you won’t be able to shorten your performance, you can apply for an exception).


  • First place: own concert in front of the full Lucerna Music Bar and 15 000 CZK
  • Second place: 10 000 CZK
  • Third place: 5000 CZK


Participation is open to music bands consisting of two or more members under the condition that at least two members must be students, graduates or employees of the University of Economics in Prague. The participants of the traditional VŠE’s GOT TALENT can participate as well. So, if you are a band, which consists of 5 members, it is enough that two of you are from VŠE. We are looking forward to you. You can also get together just because of the contest and create a brand-new band. Thanks to VŠE’s GOT Talent, several band were created in the past and some of them are performing even until today.

A band, which made it last year to the final round in the Lucerna Music Bar cannot participate this year.
