How are Festivals different from Showcases?
Festivals are a month-long event that is open to all artists of different levels and tiers. Festivals are used to help artists prepare for the major Showcases they might want to participate in later. Artists usually are able to do one performance each week during the course of the festival. They can also decide the songs they want to play during their performance time.
Showcases, on the other hand, are open to Rising Artists that meet specific requirements such as artist level or league tier and usually follow a theme, a specific format, or genre. Major prizes await the winners of these Showcases.
