Want to become a member?

The EFWMF consists of festival organizers producing regular worldwide musical events that fulfil a specific artistic and quality profile. Since the primary concerns of the EFWMF are artistic, and artistically related issues, members are represented by their artistic director. The board decides on membership after due consultation with the members.

Each member festival represented in the network pays an annual member fee. The level of this fee is determined each year by the Annual General Meeting. The membership fee is 750 EURO. In order to consider a festival as a member an application in writing must be submitted. An application form is available for download below. The application should also include the program of your festival over the last three years for added background. Do not hesitate to add any other relevant information. 
If a member wishes to resign from the EFWMF, they should do this by official written letter to the EFWMF office and before 31st December of the current year. This is to avoid that unnecessary invoices are sent out the following year.
