Visa For Music


The European Forum of Worldwide Music festivals will meet at Visa For Music.

Visa For Music (VFM) is the first professional market of Africa and Middle-East musics. The project was born from a paradox : on the one hand, the lack of visibility for African and Middle-Eastern artists at an international level and, on the other hand, an unseen artistic dynamism and musical creation from these musicians.

So, Visa For Music aims at highlighting African and Middle-Eastern artists.

Visa For Music is an essential and major meeting place for professionals of the whole music industry, whoever they are and wherever they are from. Visa For Music aims to be a sharing platform for the defense and promotion of the musical sector of African and Middle-Eastern countries.
