You can also expect news on topics and challenges that our members are dealing with on a national level. Tune in to the LIVE STYLE EUROPE radio show to be up to date on the latest evolutions of the European live music industry.

Drug Policies are crucial for the live music sector. Many organisations act everyday to prevent the risks linked to the substance use, without posing any moral judgement. This episode will focus on two projects who have a different approach but are still complementary: SONAR Berlin, a drug prevention project and “Let’s hear it from the crowd”, a project by the Swedish live music association which intends to denormalise drug use.

How were these projects born? How do they involve several partners, including policy makers? We will try to answer these questions in this episode of the Live Style Europe radioshow.
