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!
