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 to find out more about their upcoming editions.
FestivalFinder.eu moving forward with new partners
After two years of existence, FestivalFinder.eu is moving on to its next phase as of October. The new project “FestivalFinder.eu (a)Live Now” brings together several stakeholders to broaden FestivalFinder.eu’s scope and make FestivalFinder.eu more alive than ever.
