Visa For Music + membermeeting

Join us at Visa For Music next week!
Visa For Music aims to create a professional platform for music and enforce creativity and professionalisation of the cultural industry on the African Continent and in the Middle East.

Visa For Music (VFM) is the first professional market of Africa and Middle-East musics. The project is born from a paradox : on the one hand, the lack –or even the absence- of visibility of African and Middle Eastern artists at an international level and, on the other hand, there is a presence of a very important artistic dynamism and musical creation that these musicians need to be recognized for.

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.

The European Forum of Worldwide Music Festivals will hold its next membermeeting at Visa For Music, in Rabat. We will as well have a trade fair stand.
