Swiss and international professional jury Two distinct juries, National and International, bringing together programmers from major festivals and events in Switzerland and abroad who discover and elect the best talents in each category. In 2019, more than 800 artists from our four linguistic regions have registered in one or more musical categories: Pop (Pop, Indie, Blues, Folk, Songwriting), Rock (Rock, Metal, Thrash), Electro (Electro, Dance), Urban (Hip-Hop, Groove, Reggae) and ˈNational Languageˈ. The high number of bands registered reveals the importance of the local music scene, the variety of talent and their enthusiasm to develop.

They all have the opportunity to give concerts in various events, festivals and renowned clubs.
