11:30 - 12:00 Liveurope: Supporting concert venues and European music diversity

Nearly 10 years ago, 13 music venues from all over Europe came together to launch an initiative that would allow them to bring more European diversity to their stages and audiences. Fast-forward to today, and Liveurope has become a true success story gathering 23 internationally acclaimed venues. Thanks to support from Creative Europe, the member venues have been booking, on average, 41% more emerging non-national European artists than before the launch of the platform. This means nearly 3,600 artists got the opportunity to tour beyond their national borders and play on some of Europe’s most iconic stages. Join this session to learn about Liveurope’s unique working model and discover its ambitions for the future.
