ETEP 2018: a record-breaking year! 
Although the ETEP season has not yet come to an end, we’d like to share some of this year’s highlights with you. First and foremost, with 457 shows and counting ETEP has already set a new record. Due to an ever-growing pool of festivals, as well as expansions within festivals outside of Europe such as South-African OppiKoppi and Canadian Music Week (CMW). The European Talent Exchange Programme offers participating artists even better support and opportunities.

Hot, hotter, hottest! 
Local heatwaves occurred at festivals that featured ETEP record breaker Superorganism on the bill. With 20 shows, Superorganism broke the record of 17 ETEP bookings that SHAME set last year. Superorganism was not the only successful ETEP act this year: after playing ESNS, Zeal & Ardor, Yonaka, Sigrid and Tamino all managed to be booked by ten or more ETEP festivals! If you're not convinced yet: last year, 14 acts were booked for six or more ETEP shows, this year 22 acts got to play six or more festivals.
