"MOST" - Connecting Balkan Artists
In order to contribute to the development of the music industry in the Balkans and to promote performers in the international market, the “EXIT Foundation” has partnered with the four-year project "MOST - the Bridge for Balkan Music".
Each year ten Balkan performers will receive support and greater visibility on the global music scene, during this four-year project.
Calls are open for urban creatives, managers, and other professionals in the music industry, as well as for festivals.
The EXIT Foundation, together with its project partners, will use different strategies over the next four years to foster the careers of many talented artists, managers, festivals and institutions to tackle all obstacles to a mutually beneficial exchange between the Balkans and the rest of the world.
The project involves Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Northern Macedonia, Romania and Albania.
Funded by Creative Europe, MOST - the Bridge for Balkan Music, has provided a one-year mentoring program with eminent European music professionals, a five-day training on band management and portfolio creation, as well as financial support for creation and participation in international music conferences, participation in the WOMEX 2020 World Music Conference in Budapest, networking with other music professionals in the Balkans, as well as financing the cost of the project-related performers.
The EXIT festival will host a major project event next year.
The EXIT Foundation invites all performers of the world music and ethno genres to apply for a major international project, MOST - the Bridge for Balkan Music, whose main objective is to develop the music industry in the Balkans and promote performers in the international market. The deadline for application is May 15th.
