Fair Play selects the best groups to perform at Fair Play Live, which takes place during the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) in the world’s largest anti-corruption event; this year to be held in Seoul, South Korea from the 2nd to the 5th of June.
The 6th edition of Fair Play is now officially open and receiving applications. Musicians around the world are called on to create and submit original songs on the theme of anti-corruption, integrity and the fight for social justice. They must do so before the deadline of 12 April 2020.
