Our partnership with Pro Helvetia – Swiss Arts Council aims to fortify Liveurope's ties with the Swiss music scene.

It will create new opportunities for emerging Swiss acts to perform in some of the most iconic European concert halls, enhancing their international exposure and connecting them with new audiences.

The partnership has also allowed for the integration of a new member to the platform. Docks, a renowned venue in Lausanne, has been chosen as the Swiss representative for Liveurope due to its iconic reputation and commitment to European repertoire.

As a full member, Docks will enjoy access to all our platform activities, including financial support for booking emerging non-Swiss European artists, which will help them bring a greater diversity of European artists to their local audiences. They will also act as an ambassador for the Swiss music scene within the network and help push the next generation of Swiss acts onto the international stage.

Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland boasts a remarkably diverse cultural landscape and is home to many promising artists. It’s a strategic market for us at Liveurope and we are thrilled to be able to tighten our connections with the Swiss music scene through our collaboration with Pro Helvetia.

Liveurope coordinator

Europe remains the first and most important export market for Swiss artists. As the Swiss Arts Council, it's vital for us to be able to promote exchanges, create networks and seize opportunities for the emerging Swiss music scene, which is particularly rich and innovative now. Liveurope is a proven platform through which we believe we can consolidate together the essential links between artists and clubs in a sustainable way.
