Europe Day 2022
The annual celebration of Europe Day through music is making a big comeback this May! For this 8th edition, Ancienne Belgique and L’Aéronef are joining forces to put together a truly European cross-border celebration organised across two days between Brussels and Lille.
The event scheduled in Brussels on May 12 will bring together representatives from Liveurope’s 21 venues, local and international music professionals, artists, decision-makers, journalists and general audiences from all over the continent for music discoveries, networking moments and discussions on hot topics for the sector.
And it wouldn’t be Europe Day festivity without great gigs with some of the continent’s hottest acts right now! Host venues have planned not one but two special concert evenings that will take you on a colourful trip through Europe’s diverse and eclectic music scenes. Check out the program below:
10:00 – 16:30: activities for Liveurope venues’ representatives
