Wunderbar at Eurosonic 2020

Initiative Musik supports artists from Germany showcasing at Eurosonic 2020 in Groningen, Netherlands. This ETEP showcase festival helps emerging European artists get more gigs at the most important European festivals. Concerts mediated through the Eurosonic festival are supported from a common budget provided by the 34 participating countries and augmented with EU funding. For the 120 festivals participating in the programme, this provides a strong incentive to book up-and-coming European artists. Since 2003, the programme has promoted around 4,000 performances by more than 1,400 European artists.

Our Short-Tour Grants

Our Short-Tour Grants help musicians make special appearances abroad with the goal of facilitating their entry into a market or to continue establishing their presence there. Artists can apply for sponsorship for travel and promotional costs when invited for support shows and gigs at showcase festivals like Eurosonic or other music festivals. Since the programme’s launch in 2010, more than eight hundred sponsorships have been approved, mainly for performances in high-sales markets such as the United States, Japan, Great Britain and France.
