Concert Schedule



Emergenza is a music festival where if you win, you can perform at the German outdoor festival. This is a live music contest and audition for indie artists where you can compete in a wide variety of genres such as music, rock, pops, DJ, hard rock, reggae, ska, Japanese instruments, popular songs, etc. The biggest feature of Emergenza is that the judges are the audience, and it is a tournament format in which winners are won by a show of hands at the venue and by online voting. A professional judge will be present only in the final round. Bands, units, singer-songwriters, etc. can perform in any format. Age, experience, professional/amateur status, gender, nationality, etc. are not a concern (*The only condition is that this is an event for independent artists and that there is no exclusive performer contract with a major label valid at the time the performance is decided) (There is no problem with signing an exclusive performer contract with an indie label or belonging to an agency or production company.) We are looking forward to the challenge of artists and bands who want to compete on the world stage.
