De Concert! federation
In a context where festivals have become a societal phenomenon in France and Europe, a network of independent festivals has come together. From France, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, Denmark and Canada, indie festivals have a rich and unique history, often linked to their region and people. They now have a voice since the creation of the federation in October 2008.

Territoire de Musiques was awarded the ISO 20121 certification in July 2017, which rewards its responsible management system and its actions in the field of sustainable development.
Inspired by the European Festival Awards, the French Festival Awards have been rewarding since 2013 the best French music festivals in a dozen categories. This contest, which has become an inescapable part of the French musical landscape, highlights the richness and diversity of our country in this field.
This year, De Concert’s festivals were particularly distinguished and came back from the award ceremony, the Festivals’ Night, with 3 precious rewards.

De Concert! is a federation of international music, street art and multimedia festivals gathering 30 events in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Denmark, Hungary and Island, created in 2008 which offers a solidarity-based approach and promotes initiatives from its members, the artistic creation and development and on the ongoing evolution of the industry.
On 26th and 27th of October 2016, the members of the federation met in Vendôme (FR), on the 25th anniversary of Rockomotives festival, for the association’s annual general assembly. This meeting was also the opportunity for the 30 festivals responsible to draw the annual review of their event and the projects led by De Concert! in 2016 and to prepare the future actions of the federation.

The event has just been crowned “best 2016 festival” at the “Red Bull Elektropedia Awards” which rewards each year the best DJs, producers, artists, labels, clubs…, in the electronic / hip-hop music.
Like last year, Dour festival was named in the “best festival” category. And like 2015, the organizers left the evening with the prize. As highlighted by Mathieu Fonsny, co-programmer of the festival with Alex Stevens, this award is especially valuable. “There is no money at stake, but given the people attending the evening, it is an important success and a source of motivation, and it is always nice to see that people have understood what we propose each year. It is a strong signal”.
All members of De Concert! federation are pleased to announce the accession of two new festivals to the association.
– Hors Pistes, festival of independent and emerging musics in Annecy (FR) and its area, led by Le Brise Glace and Soyouz Folklore Moderne
– Nördik Impakt, festival of international electronic culture which takes place every year in Caen (FR), led by ArtsAttack! association
