The Emergenza Rock Festival is held in elimination rounds in different countries throughout the season. In the first rounds the winners are chosen by the open vote of the attending audience. The audience can vote as many times as they want and for as many bands as they choose. The regional and finals are decided by a panel of professional judges.
The goal for the bands competing in Emergenza is to make the International finals held each season at the Taubertal Open Air Festival in Germany. The winning band of the three day event is crowned the “Best Band in the World” and wins a tour, promotion, studio time and musical instruments.
