UMK 2024

A panel of music professionals headed by Tapio Hakanen, Head of Music at YleX will review the submitted entries and filter them down to make the final list of competing candidates.

“UMK’s status proves that a large percentage of the biggest Finnish music phenomena and hits have come from none other than this open call for song entries. UMK is not just the preserve of big-name artists or recording companies – every year, we also see many incredible indie artists and artists from small recording companies. We’ll soon see who will be Finland’s next Erika Vikman, Blind Channel, BESS, KUUMAA or Käärijä. It’s all about the song – so now’s the time to apply!”

The Finnish national final UMK 2024 will take place in February 2024.  The dates, host city as well as the competing candidates will be revealed in the next couple of months.
