Step 2 - Local Heat

If your application is successful, you will be asked to prepare 2 x 5 mins performances. There is no set agenda to what can be involved in your numbers. 


STAGE ONE - Every contestant will perform one number BUT only 3 of them will get through to the second stage. The first wave of elimination will happen at the end of Stage One and that is decided by audience reaction, feedback from the venue owner and the judges, but ultimately, the host will choose the Top 3. 


STAGE TWO - After a short break, the remaining Top 3 will perform their second number ( which should be a high energy performance, as EuroDrag is mostly held in nightclubs ). One out of the 3 contestants will be eliminated with the help of the audience who will be given voting cards. Each side of the voting card comprises of a green tick and a red cross. Audience holds up their cards after each performance. If a member of the audience is unsure whether to vote tick or cross ( yes or no ), they can abstain by not holding any card. The contestant who receives the most green ticks automatically goes through to the next stage. 


STAGE THREE - This leaves us with our remaining two contestants. The competition will take a short break, whilst the judges, venue owner and the host deliberate which of the last two contestants should move on to the Local Final. One person will be chosen to proceed to the next stage whilst the other will be eliminated. 


ELIMINATED CONTESTANTS - ALL eliminated contestants will always be invited to participate in later heats. EuroDrag is committed to the growth to all drag performers as opposed to just throwing aside the less experienced. We encourage all performers to improve their drag, grow, and re-enter over and over until eventually they succeed. The judges and hosts at EuroDrag are committed to giving positive feedback, unlike many drag competitions, you'll never be criticised for your style of drag or lack of experience. 


SUPPLYING YOUR TRACKS - You are expected to email us your two performances via email in MP3 formats, including the order you want the songs in ( Part 1 & Part 2 ). This has to be done a week before the event, if you fail to do that, we must regrettably 

remove you from the heat.

Step 3 - Local Final

The winners will proceed to the Local Final which follows exactly the same format as Step 2. The only difference being, there can only be one winner, and whilst the host will consider the reaction from the audience, the advice from the judges and the venue owner, they ultimately make their own decision. 


Step 4 - Country Final

The format is identical to the earlier stages.


The winner of the local final will be the representative of their city and will proceed to the country's finals ( that's if the country has more than one host venue ), where you will compete against the other cities for the chance to represent your country and win some paid gigs worth €250, a sponsorship goody bag and flights and accommodation paid for the European final.


If the country has only one host venue, then you will automatically qualify for the European Finals.

Step 5 - Grand Final

STAGE ONE -  Each country will perform one number. After everyone has performed, all the contestants, alongside with the judges + hosts, will be asked to vote for one country ( they cannot vote for themselves ). The top 4 countries who receive the most votes will proceed to Stage 2. 


STAGE TWO - Each country will perform their second number, and the same voting system will apply. In the event of a TIE, the host will announce a winner based on audience reaction, their performance and the overall participation in EuroDrag. The audience will not have direct input as it will be considered biased to the host country.



The winner will be crowned Winner of EuroDrag and

win the cash prize of  €1000
