With over 400 000 music events, 950 000 artist performances and 70 million audience visits in 2017 (Live DMA Survey, 2020), concert venues and clubs are the music sector’s foundation. They are indeed the lifeblood of artistic creation and the development of new talents.
As part of our What Artists Say campaign, we asked artists from all over Europe to testify of the important role of these stages for their careers.
We are now starting a series of 3 radioshows which give the word to 3 artists. This month, we invite the Spanish band Melenas, winners of the Music Moves Europe Talent Award, to have a chat with us on their relationship with the venues who saw their birth and discuss what it feels like to win an award.
