The Multipistes network invites you to its relaunch press conference which will be hosted as part of the Sonic Visions Music Conference. Luxembourg’s Secretary of State for Culture, Guy Arendt, will present the opening remarks of the conference, which will highlight the new artist support programme as well as the artists taking part in 2017.

Born from a joint passion to support, develop and mentor emerging musical artists from the Greater Region, the Multipistes Network is the outcome of a unique cross-border collaboration uniting music structures in Luxemburg, France, Belgium and Germany. From 2012 to 2015, the co-financed project, as part of the Interreg IVA programme of the EU, was directly beneficial to 45 groups and artists who participated to various workshops and trainings, live rehearsal sessions on stage, studio recordings and networking events.

Drawing on their experience, the pioneers of the Multipistes Network Rockhal’s Rocklab (L), l’Autre Canal in Nancy (F), LAG Rock & Pop in Koblenz (DE) and the SDAC in the Belgian Luxembourg province (BE) – have decided to renew their joint action, with the aim of strengthening relations, initiatives and the tools – artist residencies, training modules, networking – beyond the period set for the European co-financing, in order to ensure a sustainable development of the Greater Region in this field.

The Multipistes Network has assisted and supported artists and bands such as Monophona (LU), Seed to Tree (LU), Chapelier Fou (F), Scene Writers (DE), Young Ice’s Babe (F), Colline Hill (BE) or Mutiny on the Bounty (LU).
