The programme is designed to reach amateur bands who, though having great potential, encounter many obstacles which make it impossible for them to break into Polish musical scene. Winners take part in a two-year promotional and activation program. In addition to managerial care, the winners receive numerous concert proposals (both – club and open-air, including district concerts announcing the Birthday of the City “Kocham Katowice”), take part in workshops (including vocal, self-promotion, public relations and stage image, creating electronic music, mix and mastering), live video sessions and photo sessions. Thanks to the support of DSG, the bands also record their first EPs. The material is distributed in Poland and abroad. The laureates will also receive the patronage of the Katowice City of Music UNESCO.
