Liveurope, the platform established and coordinated by AB, has been selected for EU funding for the third time in a row.
For the next 3 years, Liveurope will use these funds to continue to stimulate the circulation of new European talent.
Established in 2014 by AB, with funding from the European Union, Liveurope supports top music venues across the continent to book more promising European artists.
Since 2014, more than 200 Belgian artists have enjoyed the support of the initiative. Among them: Oscar and The Wolf, Charlotte Adigéry, Meskerem Mees, The Haunted Youth, Tamino, and Lous & The Yakuza, ... With an increased budget and the addition of 5 new stages, Liveurope will play an essential role in the ongoing recovery of the live music sector post-Covid.
In 2022, Liveurope will enter a new phase with an annual grant increase of 40% (from €500,000 per year for 2014-2021 to €700,000 for 2022-2024) and the inclusion of 5 new venues (from 15 to 20 full members).
