EFFE – Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe, initiated by the European Festivals Association, is the Guide for citizens and the Platform for professionals to discover and get involved in Europe’s festivals. It is a new international festival platform connecting festivals that are deeply committed to the arts, their communities and Europe. The platform invites the audiences worldwide to encounter, participate and access up-to-date festival information.
