This worldwide music festival-type thing seems prety cool:
E M E R G E N Z A is Europe’s and North-America’s biggest music contest. A festival where bands of all musical styles proceed through various elimination rounds, having the opportunity to play in major international venues. The festival is designed for unsigned bands who have not yet found a promotional channel and who are trying to gain notoriety and experience on the national and european music scene. Top bands will be chosen to get live exposure on the open air circuit throughout 12 U.S. cities, as well as taking part of the Vans Warped tour, The Taubertal Open Air festival in Germany and get radio exposure. Emergenza is an official scouting agent for TRACK 1 Records, The MECA Music Conference & Festival, and other international labels and promoters. The very best bands will be presented to the A&R teams.
