How are Festivals different from Showcases?
Festivals are for the newer and lower-level Rising Artists that have their Artist Level between 1 and 7. Festivals are used to help these Artists prepare them for the major Showcases they might participate in later. Artists may choose their own repertoire when performing in these Festivals.
Showcases, on the other hand, are open to Rising Artists that have their Artist Level 8 or above, and usually follow a theme, a specific format, or genre. Major prizes await the winners of these Showcases.
