Extension of the EFFE Label
Good news: the EFFE Label 2019-2020 will be extended to 2021.
2020 has been a surprising and moving year for everyone. It has hit the sector, artists, festivals, hard, to the extend of substantial personal and organisational loss. Many of us had to face unplanned situations which brought new challenges to each of us. We will probably be facing these same issues in 2021 with many different things to work on. On the other hand we can also see today some positive aspects in the consequences/reaction of this crisis: festivals and stakeholders seemed to move closer together. There is a need to connect and be together.
In this context, we have decided to extend the EFFE Label 2019-2020 to 2021. This means, that for:
- the holders of the EFFE Label 2019-2020, festivals don’t need to apply for a new label next year.
- the festivals registered on FestivalFinder.eu, festivals can continue to apply for the EFFE Label and will receive this European quality stamp valid until end 2021 if they respond to the criteria.
In conclusion: please feel invited to extend this call to your favourite festivals to join FestivalFinder.eu and the EFFE Label community!

Sofie & Carlo - Here We Go Again
In the middle of Europe, two long-suffering interns are helping a festival keep disaster almost away. This is their second season and surely it can't be as tough as their first! Want a bet?
World Opera Day!
25 October is world opera day. On this day we celebrate a music genre that is a key part of the Western European Music tradition. It’s also an ideal day to put the opera festivals on FestivalFinder.eu, that are still going on despite the current state of our world, in the spotlight. Be sure to explore these festivals’ pages on FestivalFinder.eu to find out more about their upcoming editions.
