The “A.I.S.B.L. Fête Européenne de la Musique – I.N.P.O. European Music Day Association” – is an International non for profit organisation established in Brussels that aims to coordinate European organization producing or coordinating music day events.
It was created after the signature of the Budapest Charter that settled the common goals of the European organizers and coordinators representing the Ministries and the Departmental or Municipal authorities of the main European capitals that signed the common charter of the Fête Européenne de la Musique / European Music Day in 1995.
The aims of the EMDA are to support artist creativity and mobility, to promote innovative methods supporting Vocational and Educational Training opportunities, in order to support the development of the European Music Sector (in the wider sense).
The General Assembly is held once a year by the member representatives of the permanent members (Athens, Brussels, Budapest, Lausanne, London, Paris and Roma).
The EMDA association coordinates co-productions of the European Members and supports its development with other networks such as the European Live Music Association, Music2deal European Network, the Network for the Internationalization of Music Producers in Europe or the Viva Europa Network.
