Music & Europe
Celebrating the 50THAnniversary of the EURORADIO MUSIC EXCHANGe

** Live Music Entertainment **

30 November 2017, Brussels 


This latest EBU Media Lunchtime Talk will be dedicated to music and European collaboration as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Euroradio Music Exchange!

Music lies at the heart of radio. Over the past half-century, regular music exchanges between EBU radio broadcasters have grown to some 3,000 concerts each year, ensuring access to the world’s best music. In doing so, the EURORADIO Music Exchange has broadened the cultural horizons of millions of listeners around Europe and beyond, with performances ranging from great opera houses, to pop/rock, dance and hip-hop concerts, together with diverse sounds from across the world.

This anniversary comes at a time when the European Union has confirmed its commitment to promote the diversity, creativity and competitiveness of the music sector in Europe. The "Music Moves Europe: Boosting European music diversity and talent" initiative has just been adopted and will represent an important step for the music sector.  

Join us to celebrate great music and find out more about how EU initiatives in the field can help support music creation, promote musical diversity and explore the new opportunities for distributing music.
