Liveurope is an initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote up-and-coming European artists. The platform works as a quality label awarded to live music venues committing to European diversity. The objective of Liveurope is to boost the programming of young European acts across the continent and help them reach new audiences. Established in 2014, the Liveurope platform is the first initiative of its kind in Europe.
Since 2014, Liveurope’s main objective was to encourage its members to book more EENNAs (Emerging European Non National Artists) in their respective venues. Three years later, 1331 concerts have been organized as part of the
platform, which shows a significant progress of the members efforts from year to year:
– 2013/2014 (pre-Liveurope): 293 eligible Liveurope concerts in 13 venues
– 2014/2015 (year 1): 380 Liveurope concerts in 13 venues
– 2015/2016 (year 2): 457 Liveurope concerts in 13 venues
– 2016/2017 (year 3): 494 Liveurope concerts in 14 venues
