After Sunday´s Gala show, the Festival provides a meet-and-greet buffet dinner where artists can personally meet the leading agents and directors from German Variety. 

The festival prizes are in form of contract offers from the largest and most prestigious Variety theatres in Germany. Prize winners are guarenteed contract offers - which means you´ve made it! You´re performing in German Variety Theatre. 

Not only that, but throughout the festival weeks, artists will have access to support and advice from our fabulous and experienced staff on anything from professionalism in emailing to business card design and how to receive and sign contracts.
