VKRS (Video Killed the Radio Star) is the combination of music and video in one event! Bands often need a video to promote their music, but the video is much more than a broadcast medium. It is an art form in its own, right! And its artists deserve to be highlighted and recognised! There will be lots of clips, prizes will be awarded, professionals will mingle, there will be concerts, dancing all night, masterclasses with hangovers, and video teams will take up the Speed-Clipping challenge: making a clip in three days!
