HOW THE FESTIVAL WORKS

 INFORMATION ABOUT THE UP AND COMING BAND'S CONTEST EDITION 2017/18 

  • FEEL LIVE MUSIC!


    Emergenza is a participatory live music platform for amateur bands and artists. It was born to bring to life your musical projects on the best stages.

  • THE FESTIVAL


    Emergenza is the greatest and biggest musical event for new bands all over the world. It began in 1991 and runs in over 33 countries and 187 cities. The Australian season is from March to December in 5 cities : Sydney, Melboune, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.


  • THE GIGS


    Eight bands play at each gig and each band plays for 25 mins.

    The organisation provides the backline, technical equipment, live venues and production. The bands only need to provide their instruments.

    Each city has different stages. 3 in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, 2 in Adelaide and Brisbane.

    In the first rounds, winner bands are chosen by:
    A) All the musicians that are or have been part of the festival
    B) The audience


    In this first stage a technical jury could decide, if needed, to save a band per gig.
  • EMERGENZA SPIRIT


    Emergenza is totally against ‘pay to play’ policy. Bands may be remunerated depending on how many people are attending.


    There is no enrolment fee only a $100 deposit that will be refunded to the band when they attend and play. There are no more payments.


    Unlike other festivals, with Emergenza there is no obligation to sell tickets, so each band is free to manage their own promo however they like.

  • THE FINALS


    A professional jury will be part of the final round and will choose the winner and give out technical prizes.

    The winners from each state will go to the national final in Sydney (Emergenza will cover the cost of the trip for the musicians, flights + accomodation).


    In the final, the professional jury will vote for the best musicians. Some of the prizes are: instruments, amplifiers, technical equipment, time in a recording studio, distribution, and much more.

  • INTERNATIONAL FINAL


    The Australian winner will participate in the grand world final in Germany in the Taubertal Open Air Festival (Emergenza will pay for flights and accomodation).

    The festival winner will get a deal with Marshall Records.

  • ADVANTAGES OF EMERGENZA


    Every season Emergenza sends to a recording studio several bands (it doesn't matter the score during the festival). 

    At every gig the winning band has the opportunity to distribute their music online.
