Description

The main objective of the ETEP is to facilitate the circulation of a European repertoire, artists and productions in Europe, as well as to support collaboration between the European music industry and media in order to promote European non-national acts and repertoire.

As a platform, ETEP focuses on achieving more media-coverage and visibility of the artists and on raising awareness of ETEP’s activities to European audiences. ETEP’s branding strategy pays special attention to the publication of its results and in appealing to B2C target groups, namely the audiences of festivals, radio stations and the media in Europe. 

Testimonial from Irish Partner

‘Many acts that received support from ETEP at the start of their careers have grown out to be very successful. Over the past 17 years, acts such as Agnes Obel, Ásgeir, Ben Howard, Benjamin Clementine, Calvin Harris, Franz Ferdinand, James Blake, MØ, Noisia, Selah Sue, The Editors, The Kooks, The XX, Within Temptation and Years & Years have greatly benefited from the support of the ETEP programme. More recently, acts such as Fontaines DC, Idles, Shame, Alma, Aurora and Dua Lipa played some of their first international shows with the support of the European Talent Exchange Programme.’
