This YOUROPE Hub is a collection of knowledge, best-practice examples and tools for those interested in organizing popular music festivals. It will constantly be updated with content recommended by our working groups, the project team or the association’s management.

You can navigate this library with the help of the filter framework of focus topics and categories. “Best practice” includes case studies of projects and festivals that are exceptional in some way and can serve as a role model. “Publication” comprises guides, handbooks, reports, scientific papers etc. “Tools” shows online resources that are more interactive than PDFs. “Article” is for news and announcements by YOUROPE.
