Wrocław show was a real musical extravaganza. 12 artists took the stage at the A2 Concert Centre in Wrocław. 10 bands fought for a coveted spot on one of the stages of Pol'and'Rock Festival, while 2 guest star performances served to prove that dreams can come true: both Chorzy and Nocny Kochanek competed for a spot on the festival line-up - and won! Jurors agreed that they were impressed by the bands aspiring to play at the festival and their live shows have a great potential. 

Three bands were invited to continue their adventure in the Emerging Bands competition and to play one more gig at the final concert in Warsaw. They are HOPEHORRORSCOPE and DREAM ATLAS. Three bands impressed jurors so much as to be fast-tracked to play at the festival: DREAMHEART, METKAand ST. JAMES HOTEL
