Apply to be part of EXCITE Music 2023!

Are you an emerging artist or band looking to take your first steps abroad in 2023? Kultur | lx remains a partner in the EXCITE network, a highly-collaborative project between nine partner organisations based across Europe (BE, DE, DK, FI, LU, NO, NL, SE, UK). This innovative network leverages a dynamic mechanism to expedite the internationalisation of young artists earlier in their careers and development.

The delivery model is built around a core of at least nine partner festivals in their respective markets, with potential for visibility on curated stages at events like Reeperbahn Festival and The Great Escape.

Apply here
Deadline : December 5, 2022

The EXCITE network offers:

  • Credible career opportunities
      • Have the chance for first festival plays across northern Europe
      • Tour internationally and transnationally
      • Peer-to-peer co-writing opportunities
    • Brokering networking possibilities and facilitating industry connections; 
    • Accessing new markets earlier and reaching and engaging wider audiences;
  • Leveraging access to high-level international music industry contacts.

Are you ready for EXCITE? Artists/bands applying for the program must be/have: 

    • Some level of touring experience but are not actively performing internationally (those with an already active international touring schedule are actually above the level of the network).
    • Enough original music material to play a 30 – 40 minute concert. Do you also have releases planned for 2023?
    • Have a solid base of press material from which the festivals can use.
    • Young at heart. There’s no strict age limit (though most participants are between 18 and 30).
  • Eager, experienced (quality), ambitious, and have a good work ethic, attitude, and willing to actively collaborate with others.
