Since 2014


Ancienne Belgique is proud to present Liveurope, the first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote emerging European music.

What is Liveurope?

Liveurope is a European quality label awarded to live music venues committing to standards of excellence and European diversity in their programming policy. The objective of this programme coordinated by Ancienne Belgique is to boost the programming of young European acts across the continent and help them reaching new audiences.

How does it work?

All participating venues are encouraged to program and promote emerging music talent from Europe, through incentive support provided by the ‘Creative Europe’ Programme of the European Union.

Young artists supported within this system should be established in Europe and be committed to achieving a professional music career beyond their national borders. Thanks to Liveurope, Ancienne Belgique and its partners will promote hundreds of new, exciting live acts from Europe every year.

Who is participating?

Along of Ancienne Belgique, this initiative brings together some of the most popular concert venues on the European continent:


One of the goals of the platform is to attract an ever-growing number of participating concert venues in Europe, in order to bring Liveurope to as many countries, cities, and audiences as possible. If music has no language, then it shouldn’t have any borders either!

What is AB’s role?

Ancienne Belgique is the coordinator of this initiative, which means that it is responsible for the management of the network of participating concert venues and for the establishment of the Liveurope label. Located in the heart of Brussels, the European capital, AB works closely with the EU to develop and promote Liveurope.


What’s next?

A variety of events and promotion actions will be organised in the framework of Liveurope, such as workshops and an annual conference, with a view to strongly embed this new label within the European live music sector.
