During the last few years Emergenza started some excellent co-operations with top festivals all over Europe. Beside the tremendous effect it has on promotion for both sides (us & the festivals), everybody focuses on the bands which is mutually beneficial. The worldwide Winner as well as other bands from the international final along with the bands from the Emergenza Artistpool are booked for those festival slots. As well, these festivals will get the best upcoming bands from all over the world for a reasonably small budget and Emergenza proves once again, that it is more than just another band contest - it is the biggest agency and supplier for unsigned bands worldwide!.
On the left you'll find all the partner festivals for this season as already scheduled. And in our Showarchiv you can have a closer look all the past events of the last few years.
