UPBEAT is the European showcase platform for world music.

The 14 current members of the UPBEAT platform can draw support for booking up-and-coming bands, international artists, or even new collaborations. With UPBEAT’s help, members can meet their sustainability goals and organise professional events, conferences, and more. Our mission is to foster a forward-thinking and thriving world music industry in Europe.

In addition, UPBEAT supports our showcase day and some of our professional events.
