A new online search tool to bring the arts everywhere: EFFE’s FestivalFinder.eu
On 14 November, the European Festivals Association (EFA) launches the FestivalFinder.eu, an online search tool for audiences worldwide to discover all arts festivals, from music to theatre, street arts to dance, literature, … in 45 countries in Europe near and far.
The FestivalFinder.eu is part of the initiative ‘Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe – EFFE’.
It guides international audiences, festival lovers, artists, managers, travellers, academics, journalists, bloggers, policy makers, city developers,...through the world of Europe’s diverse cultural space. It is rooted in and steered by the festivals community with the support of the European Commission and Parliament.
In partnership with arts festivals, cities, tourism boards and last but not least the audiences the FestivalFinder.eu ambitions to be the most up-to-date, comprehensive, insightful and practical guide to Europe’s arts festivals.
Registration on the FestivalFinder.eu is open as of today, 14 November, for free and easy to do. Already 1129 organisations are part of this online tool: the EFFE Label winners in 2015-2016 or in 2017-2018.
The EFFE Label is Europe’s quality stamp for remarkable arts festivals showing their engagement in the field of the arts, community involvement and international openness.

'Maybe we are saying these are not foreign languages – it's the way Ireland is now,' says Festival Producer Francesca la Morgia, 'More and more families live in bilingual or trilingual households.'
