Emergenza is the world's largest festival for unsigned bands, with concerts in more than 150 cities around the world. It features "up and coming bands from across the globe. There are elimination rounds in different countries throughout the year, whereby the bands that advance are selected by the audiences that hear them. Professional judges choose the winners at regional and final concerts.
The first Emergenza Festival was held in 1992, when a group of musician friends staged the first event in Rome, Italy, before an audience of around 300. Five months later, the attendance had grown to three thousand, and in that year the festival's first compilation album was made. From 1993 to 2003 Emergenza recorded 54 such albums, both live and in studio. In 1995 the Emergenza logo was created. Since its creation Emergenza gets bigger and better each year.
