European Forum on Music 2023

From 8 to 10 June 2023, over 150 representatives from more than 20 European countries gathered at the House of Music Hungary in Budapest for the 11th edition of the European Forum on Music (EFM).

Over the three days in Budapest, music professionals and art enthusiasts from across Europe and beyond, gathered to get to know relevant case studies, learn about exciting music projects, and meet their peers who share the same aim: to Sustain Music.

For many, the concept of sustainability automatically sparks conversations around climate change and the ecological transition. However, the EFM 2023 highlighted that the concepts of sustainability are broad, and the world of music is a big, diverse place.
