ETEP Moves Europe: Looking back at 4.001 ETEP shows

ETEP have now enabled over 4.000 shows by emerging European Talent at festivals all over the world and helped 1.445 acts kick-start their international careers.

Since the start of the programme in 2003 ETEP has facilitated 4.001 shows by 1.445 acts in 34 countries, and we are very proud to have contributed to the careers of so many talented European acts.

Many acts that received support from ETEP at the start of their careers have grown out to be very successfu. Over the past 17 years, acts such as Agnes Obel, Ásgeir, Ben Howard, Benjamin Clementine, Calvin Harris, Franz Ferdinand, James Blake, MØ, Noisia, Selah Sue, The Editors, The Kooks, The XX, Within Temptation and Years & Years have greatly benefited from the support of the ETEP programme. More recently, acts such as Idles, Shame, Alma, Aurora and Dua Lipa played some of their first international shows with the support of the European Talent Exchange Programme.

ETEP is looking forward to seeing what the future brings, but one thing is set in stone: ETEP will continue to grow and offer even more artist great opportunities!

Concerto dos We Trust encerra WestWay Lab 2.0

O segundo momento do WestWay Lab termina com um concerto dos We Trust, projeto que tem como mentor André Tentugal e que se tem vindo a afirmar junto dos fãs e da crítica, confirmando o talento desta banda emergente.
Após dois anos de retiro criativo, os We Trust inauguram assim a sua tour 2014 no #CCVF, em #Guimarães, para apresentar o novo trabalho, cujo single de apresentação é uma canção épica dedicada às pessoas e que muitos já chamam de hino – “We Are The Ones” -, um apelo ao positivismo, um grito de esperança, esse motor que faz com que o mundo não pare de girar.
Os bilhetes para o concerto já se encontram disponíveis neste link. Mais informação em www.ccvf.pt.

The second moment of WestWay Lab ends with a concert by We Trust, a project mentored by André Tentúgal that has been hailed among public and the specialty media critics, confirming the talent of this emerging band.
After two years on creative retreat, a first sample of his new album has been released, the premiere single, “We Are The Ones,” which has been winning over all who have heard it. This is an impressive song dedicated to people, one which many have hailed as a hymn, a song which rallies to the notion of unity and change.

Tickets for the concert are now available at this link. More information at www.ccvf.pt.
