The world's largest offer of live music
We know music is central to your radio programming so you have easy access to first-class music and events through our Music Exchange.
With around 3,000 concerts by both leading and emerging artists shared every year, this is the world’s largest offer of live music. Covering all genres from classical and opera to folk, jazz, world, rock, pop and dance, we provide access to prestigious concerts and performances from venues across the globe to enrich the diversity and quality of your music offer.
Members request around 20,000 programmes from the Music Exchange every year, making it a cost-effective way of sharing the world’s best music with your audiences. Performances range from the BBC Proms and the New York Metropolitan Opera to Coldplay and Radiohead. We also organize six major music events and festivals every year, in conjunction with our Members, including Eurosonic and the Euroradio Folk Festival.
Members can see our Music Exchange Statistics for 2020.
In 2020, the world marked the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven. The German composer is the most frequently performed classical composer worldwide, and interest in his music has remained unabated for centuries. Maverick, rebel, visionary - he remains just as relevant today.
With a view towards the next International Women’s Day on 8 March 2021, Danish Radio is producing a podcast series about women composers, for adaptation and use by all EBU radio organizations.
The Eurosonic Festival is the European showcase for up-and-coming bands and artists, and Euroradio is at the heart of this annual three-day event, which takes place every January in Groningen (Netherlands).
