Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques

PROMOTING & REPRESENTING

Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques is a public agency specialized in supporting exports for the Wallonia-Brussels Federation’s music industry in Belgium.

The agency promotes musicians originating from Wallonia and Brussels to foreign professional audiences. It takes part in international networks (ETEP, EJN, Belgium Booms, EMEE, AIECF, etc.) and is a point of contact for showcase festivals (EurosonicPrintemps de Bourges, The Great Escape, Classical:NEXTWomexMaMA, etc.).

Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques is also a way to obtain the assistance allocated by Wallonie-Bruxelles International (assistance with tours, international promotion, transport or marketing, showcasing abroad). Please don’t hesitate to contact us to meet with our agents and obtain advice.


INFORMING & SUPPORTING

WBM Expertise is a Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques project dedicated to the professionals in the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (FWB) music industry. It caters to managers, labels, and artists working in the FWB region who have international business or who want to develop it.

Our activities

In operation for over thirty years, Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques has developed many contacts with industry professionals. Various partnerships have been formed, helping the artists to gain exposure in a demanding and highly competitive industry. So, each year, by ourselves or in partnership with other agencies (like for the Belgium Booms action, presented in collaboration with Kunstenpunt and Sabam For Culture), we are present at about twenty festivals and events where we offer diversified initiatives to ensure the outreach of Wallonia-Brussels Federation operators with international professionals.

Here is the list of the different events in which we are active.
