We have travelled over 3 500 kilometres and listened for hours upon hours of music in order to find those very unique and promising musicians who have it them to put a spell on the audience at the Most Beautiful Festival in the World. The up-and-coming bands will get a chance to play for a huge and very appreciative audience. Appearing at one of the stages of the massive free festival can launch their careers! 

The jury of the festival first selected bands based on demo CDs they have submitted. Then, the bands were tasked with playing short live sets, so that the jurors could see how they behaved on stage, what energy they were able to share with the audience, and, first and foremost how they sound live. We have held free concerts in Wrocław, Poznań, Gdańsk, and even travelled abroach to the Czech Republic, to meet emerging talents in Prague. The final concert of the 2018 edition of the Emerging Bands Competition took place in Warsaw and jurors decided which bands will complete Pol'and'Rock Festival 2018 line-up.
