One World Beat Conditions
to participate in One World Beat
you register to participate in One World Beat
you will agree to the following conditions. We
recommend to print these conditions and add them
to your files.
One World Beat unites performers and musicians
around the world to raise awareness and funds
for chosen help projects. The local concerts are
organized by local participants, such as musicians,
bands, promoters, organizations, music venues
or other enthusiastic people. The organization
of an event/concert involves everything from finding
an appropriate location, hiring the musicians,
ensuring security and financial guaranties, respect
of local/national/international laws, insurances
to promoting the concert locally (list non-exhaustive).
One World Beat provides promotional support through
the website and through the team of coordinators/volunteers
to the international media.
of an Event
There are no conditions on the size of the event.
You can organize a small acoustic concert in your
local music venue or bring together musicians
and bands and create a larger-scale event. For
first time organizers, we recommend to start with
a smaller concert. The goal is to enjoy your participation,
not to get overwhelmed by the task.
Once you have registered and signed up your participation
on this website you can promote the event in your
area using the One World Beat name and concept
to gain media attention. You need to stay in touch
with the One World Beat team so we can optimize
local and international efforts.

One World Beat is about artists making a difference
through music. Together they raise funds and awareness
for a specific help project. Each participating
artist, venue and promoter agrees to donate all
or part of the proceeds (at least 50%) of the
concert to the One World Beat organization. One
World Beat then supports chosen help projects
with the raised funds. The choice of the help
projects is subject to change, according to the
various partnerships with different help-organizations.
All internal desicions are published on the website.

don't have a credit card, you can also send in
a check to our headquarters in Switzerland. However,
the cashing of international checks can be complicated
and create additional charges by the banks.

Timeline for Donations
All participants agree to wire the raised funds
to One World Beat not later than three weeks after
the event takes place. Further they agree to send
in a detailed report of how much money was raised
and how much money was used for expenses. This
is to ensure transparency and that the One World
Beat label is not misused for any personal financial
gain by local organizers.
Local organizers can have support from local sponsors
to help organize the local event. However, One
World Beat reserves the right to refuse a sponsor
if their practices are against the basic OWB values
or prior agreements on the international level.
In particular, we are restricting sponsorships
from the tobacco or alcohol industry, or other
companies that are violating basic human values
such as child labor. Since we are raising awareness
about the problems in this world, we are encouraging
you to do some background research before you
send out your sponsorship proposals. If you have
any questions about working with a specific sponsor
we invite you to contact our team.
Participating Non-profit organizations
Local non-profit organizations have the opportunity
to raise funds for their own projects by using
the One World Beat label. To unite all the participants
in one big effort, we are asking these participating
organizations to donate 25% of their proceeds
to One World Beat. The remaining 75% can be used
for their local projects.
One World Beat reserves the right to refuse a
participation, without the obligation to give
a reason. One World Beat is about trust and honesty
and any abuse of the OWB label or OWB cause for
purely personal gain is sanctioned with the immediate
removal of a concert or participant. The One World
Beat team is constantly monitoring the website
and reserves the right to make any changes.
One World Beat is a network of local events and
cannot be held liable for the actions of the local
organizers. We reserve the right to refuse participation.
It is the responsibility of each organizer to
arrange for the security of the spectators and
make sure that all local and national laws are
respected. One World Beat does not give any financial
support to local events and cannot be held responsible
for financial or any other engagements or actions
of local organizers.
