Suzuki FANtastic Sounds: Young Artists Wanted

Suzuki – official pan-European sponsor of the 2010 MTV EMAs ­– is offering young music artists the chance to kick-start their careers with Suzuki FANtastic Sounds, a new online competition. To tie in with the launch of its new Swift, the Japanese manufacturer is looking for a special sound tailored to the car.

The Suzuki FANtastic Sounds campaign is calling on the music loving target audience and offers artists a chance to present their musical creation not only to a pan-European online audience, but also to a professional jury including MTV International’s Talent & Music team.


The music style needs to reflect Suzuki’s “Way of Life!”, a unique blend of the brand values “excitement”, “straightforward”, “value”, “sporty” and “spirit”. The only pre-requisites are that entrants must be above 18 and not have a record contract.


From the 15th to the 29th of July DJs, bands, solo artists or composers will find more info at


A jury made up of music professionals – among them “Die Happy” singer Marta Jandova – will rate all entries and decide the winner based on originality and overall musicality. First prize is a trip to the 2010 MTV EMAs in Madrid on the 7th of November, including VIP ticket and after show party – but most of all the chance to start an international career, powered by Suzuki and MTV, two leaders in their fields. Suzuki FANtastic Sounds will be supported by a pan-European on-air campaign on MTV between the 15th and 29th of July. The winner will be announced in early August.


Production of the brand new Swift, world strategic model and latest member of Suzuki’s internationally successful line of small cars, has just started and it goes on sale this autumn.
