„Rock’n’Roll will never die“ – because those are the new talents!
Europe´s best new rock bands in one night: selected out of 252 candidacies by an international jury, the 8 finalists were competing for the titel. The live event took place on 24 November 2012. Silke Super (Radio Eins) was hosting the show and NINA HAGEN, the legendary mother of punk rock, was performing as top act and played a fulminant concert at the end of the night. EUROCK MARATHON was the starting shot for a Europe-wide Rock’n’Roll family movement to which the entire city was invited. The EUROCK Marathon took place for 3 hours at Postbahnhof at Ostbahnhof – live rock music with top act and award ceremony. The audience decided together with the jury members Peter Radszuhn (Radio Eins), Ralf Goldkind (music producer, musician) and Norbert Döpp (BerlinKonzerte), which band should be awarded.
Black Box Music contributed to this event by sponsoring the awards for the bands.
Those were this year´s award winners:
1. prize: SINGLETON from Ukraine
2. prize: KIRMIZI from Turkey
3. prize: THE BANDITI from Italy
