UPBEAT Universe launch in TALLINN

and be

Meet us in person as we launch the first public tool of UPBEAT, a free database of music professionals active and growing all year round! An exclusive event hosted by UPBEAT member TALLINN MUSIC WEEK serves as the first offline get-together and formal kickoff of what we call the UPBEAT Universe, a global network of likeminded professionals.

A delegation of Hangvető and UPBEAT travels to Tallinn, home of one of the industry’s loveliest hubs and most inspiring showcase events: Tallinn Music Week. We invite you to an exclusive event to clink glasses to a future-oriented music community. Tallinn Music Week’s Helen Silda will welcome guests, Hangvető’s Balázs Weyer will introduce UPBEAT, an invited group of music professionals will exchange ideas and network over a lovely selection of food and drinks. 


New members signing up until 12 May can win PRO passes for next year’s Budapest Ritmo, a major world music event in the CEE region. 5 winners will be randomly selected and notified via email prior to the reception in Tallinn.

UPBEAT fosters sustainability, global cooperation and local cultures, talent discovery and a more resilient music community. Join our network and let’s celebrate the start of new connections, shared ideas and a stronger and proudly colourful world music scene.
