The kick-off event of the new award “Music Moves Europe Talent Awards” will take place during the Reeperbahn Festival 2018!
The new prize of the European Union for popular and contemporary music, implemented by Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) in cooperation with the Reeperbahn Festival and several European music industry associations, will be awarded to artists who represent the European sound of today and tomorrow. The award is aimed at supporting new music talents from Europe and developing their international careers. The nominees will be presented on Friday, 21 September, in two shows at the Reeperbahn Festival, the twelve winners will be announced in November, and prizes awarded at the ESNS in Groningen in the Netherlands.
Nominees are selected through monitoring the European Breaker Charts, their streaming figures, results of the European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP) and recommendations from music export offices as well as partners involved in the prize-giving. The winners will be rewarded with live gigs, a tailor-made training programme and financial support for tours and promotion campaigns. The annual Music Moves Europe Talent Awards are co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission.
The awards will be presented by ESNS and the Reeperbahn Festival, in cooperation with Yourope, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Independent Music Companies Association (IMPALA), the International Music Managers Forum (IMMF), Liveurope, Live DMA, European Music Exporters Exchange (EMEE) and Digital Music Europe (DME).
