The “New wave festival” is one of the most popular competition in Europe. Many Eurostars have started their promising careers by just participating in it among them a winner, Dima Bilan, who was fourth in 2002. The outcome of the competition comes from a jury of 8 very well established artists, among them this year we find 4 Eurostars : Phillip Kirkorov (RU 1995), Ani Lorak (UKR 2008), Valeriya (RU NF 2009) and as a guest juror the famous Greek composer and producer Dimitris Kontopoulos (Belarus 2007, Ukraine 2008, Greece 2009, Azerbaijan 2013, Russia 2014)
