The winner of Imagine France 2022
We are proud to present the winner of Imagine France edition 2022!
Wheobe will represent France during the international Imagine final on Friday 30 September 2022 in the Bozar and will compete against the winners from Brazil, Belgium, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Zimbabwe!
Wheobe is a made-up word created and chose by Swann (lead vocals), Ivanoé (guitar), Matthias (bass guitar) and Matthieu (drums) to name their band. Their music delivers an impressive mixture, somewhere between 70's psych rock, a fresh indie rock and a catchy alt rock vibes. Oscillating between Radiohead and Black Midi, the combo proves to be a winner both by its ardor and its bewitching live.
Discover the 11 finalists!
Here they are, the 11 finalists of Imagine France edition 2022: Blue Angels, Wheobe, Mina, Origine, Loryas, Crrec, Manopolo, Bali Dou, Origine Club, Zalbecino, R'san! And our special guests from Netherlands and Sweden.
How Imagine works
Imagine starts with a series of preselections, either digital or live. Young musicians enter their music projects online and we select the most promising to participate. Typically 10 groups will be selected to participate in either Regional or National Finals, where one winning artist is selected from each country to participate in the Imagine International Final. Each Imagine event offers workshops and training to help young musicians take their career to the next level, connecting with other young artists, building friendships and having a good time.
