Liveurope & EBU present Europe Day: a cross-border musical celebration of Europe


For the 7th consecutive year, we will be celebrating Europe Day doing what we know best: throwing the spotlight on fresh new European talent. And, for this year’s edition, we are thrilled to have the support of public radio stations part of the European Broadcasting Union to help artists reach even wider audiences!

Each of the 15 participating Liveurope venues has recorded an exclusive mini-showcase with a promising local artist which will be broadcasted by a number of radios across Europe and the world, starting on the week of Europe Day. Some of the radios are also preparing very special broadcasts that will bring you to behind the scenes of this initiative, including interviews with the artists and venues.

This initiative is supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission and has the official endorsement of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the Cultural Creators Friendship Group in the European Parliament.

Though the pandemic has brought the circulation of artists within Europe to a nearly complete halt, we are more committed than ever to continue playing a key role in the development of new talent. Even if we can’t host these artists on our stages at this moment, we want to continue bringing audiences the very best music our continent has on offer.

Tune in to your favourite radio from May 2nd to join our celebration of Europe and discover fresh new sounds. All showcase videos will also be available for on-demand viewing on from May 9th at midnight!
