European Commission

EFFE is a European Commission pilot project for a European Platform for Festivals in the field of culture initiated by the European Festivals Association (EFA), the umbrella organisation for festivals across Europe and beyond.


Each country across the EU has a EFFE Hub acting as the contact point for artists, festivals, businesses, policy-makers and local audiences. Their job is to establish, develop and promote the EFFE Platform in their countries. Hub Experts – personalities and experts on festivals – are selected by the festival hubs to evaluate each country’s applications. If an participating country does not have a festival hub, EFFE makes sure that applications from that country are assessed. Find the Hubs of the 2017-2018 edition here.
