Innovation Network of European Showcases

Innovation Network of European Showcases
Driving synergies between showcase festivals, artists and music industry pros
The INNOVATION NETWORK OF EUROPEAN SHOWCASES is a European cooperation project initiated by eight showcase festivals and gigmit, the European digital platform for artist discovery.


What counts is music

This programme will enable young talents to get equal European exposure and the chance to build their international careers with showcasing around Europe.

INES partners nominate promising young talents from their own country in order to circle them around the participating festivals in Europe.

Making music pros shake hands

Music professionals are the key drivers of the music industry.

INES#pro is a funding programme that supports professionals to attend all those great European showcase festivals out there, to discover bands, create personal networks, be educated and craft powerful synergies.

How to get the funding?


Making knowledge sustainable

Speaking about education, INES wants to make knowledge more sustainable and accessible to everyone in the music industry.

This way you can find all english speaking and international relevant conference panels not only at the festivals, but also online in the INES#conference library, recorded as a video and categorized.
