Join us

Are you running a music, dance, theatre or multidisciplinary arts festival? You work internationally and want to be part of a bigger festival community? Then the European Festivals Association (EFA) is the right network for your festival! EFA invites festivals far and near, large and small, covering all artistic disciplines to join the network.

How can you join

Festivals are invited to submit their application:

The EFA Board evaluates the applications throughout the year and presents selected festivals to the General Assembly which meets once a year. During the next General Assembly (Galway, 29 April 2020) EFA Members vote on applicant festivals. Applying festivals are invited to the General Assembly.

More information on the application process and guidelines of the association can be found here:

In case of questions, please do not hesitate to contact the EFA Secretariat.

What do I get out of EFA Membership?

Thanks to EFA, each member festival is in the position to benefit from a diverse range of returns. Each member can save budgetary resources in its day-to-day practice thanks to EFA’s membership. Although the measurement of the impact of a network seems obsolete, this exercise puts in words and numbers what can be the return on investment, if you let the network work for you. Read the examples here.
