European Festival Awards

The European Festival Awards is a celebration of the incredibly diverse festival industry across the continent. Decided by a combination of public vote and industry juries, these Awards are the only pan-European body solely dedicated to recognising the contributions and achievements of the event organisers and performing artists that generate billions of Euros for local economies and brighten up the summer for tens of millions of festival-goers each year. As well as giving fans chance to tell festival organisers which events they think are the best, it also provides industry networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities through the associated UK conference. Categories include: Best Major European Festival, Best Medium-Sized European Festival, Best Small European Festival, Best New European Festival, Best Indoor Festival, Best European Festival Line-Up *, YOUROPE Green ‘N’ Clean Festival Of The Year, Artist’s Favourite European Festival *, Best Newcomer, Best Headliner, Festival Anthem of the Year, Promoter Of The Year, Yourope Lifetime Achievement Award *

The gala award show takes place in January during Eurosonic Noorderslag at De Oosterpoort in Groningen.
