The Ancienne Belgique is the coordinator of the initiative, which aims to increase the number of up-and-coming European artists performing at Liveurope venues and to help the artists reach new audiences beyond their home market.

The Liveurope 'label' will be promoted across the live music scene and other concert halls will be encouraged to back the scheme. An annual Liveurope conference is also planned.

The Liveurope music venues are: Rockhal, Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg Sala Apolo, Barcelona, Spain FZW, Dortmund, Germany Circolo Degli Artisti, Roma, Italy Vega, Copenhagen, Denmark Blå, Oslo, Norway Melkweg, Amsterdam, Netherlands A38, Budapest, Hungary Stodoła, Warszaw, Poland Nouveau Casino, Paris, France Palaç Akropolis, Prague, Czech Republic Village Underground, London, UK
