  • The artist is not from the country where the concert takes place.
  • The artist may not have released more than 3 albums in the last 5 years, as the purpose is to support starting artists.

The new Sabam For Culture / Liveurope grant is intended to cover the costs of a concert of an artist or group affiliated to Sabam touring within the framework of Liveurope.
