Helping European Talent cross borders
ETEP invests in the geographical spread of artists by working together with 130 festivals from 38 countries. Attracting a total of 7.716.250 visitors each year, the 130 festivals participating in ETEP create a huge potential audience for ETEP acts. Additionally, the programme offers artists from all European countries the chance to participate. In 2019 this resulted in acts from 27 countries performing at festivals in 32 countries.
Some new frontiers were crossed this year with Fontaines D.C., Farveblind, Karpov not Kasparov and Say Yes Dog playing the first Russian ETEP shows at Stereoleto in July and in November, Boy Azooga will play the first ever Hong Kong ETEP show at Clockenflap.

The European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP) was introduced in 2003 to stimulate the exchange of European artists across Europe, and would not be possible without the funding of the support programmes for culture by the European Union. ETEP has been one of the very first programmes to support popular music on a European level. Currently ETEP receives funding by the sub-programme “Culture” as part of Creative Europe. To find out more about Creative Europe, please check ec.europa.eu/programmes/creative-europe.
An initiative of ESNS, ETEP facilitates the bookings of European acts on European & international festivals outside their home countries and generates extensive media exposure for these artists in cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) public radio stations, as well as national and international media. Additionally, ETEP actively cooperates with 16 music export offices. This way, ETEP aims to give a boost to the international careers of European artists and highlights the participating ETEP festivals.
Since the start of the programme in 2003 ETEP has facilitated 4.372 shows by 1604 acts in 37 countries, and we are very proud to have contributed to the careers of so many talented European acts. 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 Idles, Shame, Alma, Aurora and Dua Lipa played some of their first international shows with the support of the European Talent Exchange Programme.
