What is Beirut&Beyond?
The 2nd edition of Beirut&Beyond is schedule between the 4th and the 7th of December 2014 in Beirut. It will present:
- Rich musical program of 11 acts in 5 different venues
- An intimate professional workshop
- A Kids' workshop
- An open lecture
- A concert in Tripoli
- The invitation of 15 international professionals
- A volunteer program
- A European tour for 4 selected acts of the line up
The presence of the key professionals represent substantial networking opportunities for the musicians, and they would bring back to their countries a more nuanced view on contemporary culture in the Arab world.
The volunteer program aims at engaging young people and providing them with hands on experience throughout the months leading up to and during the festival.
We are happy that this year, we have a concert outside Beirut. In Tripoli, the city we believe, deserves our efforts to come back again the city of culture, tolerance and peace.
Why do we need your support?
We are missing a small amount to be able to cover one of the main activities of the festival: Networking & development!
Beirut & Beyond has been established in partnership with the Oslo World Music Festival. We found common objectives and values which allowed us to work together.
This partnership was the main key to earn the support of the Embassy of Norway in Beirut, along with Music Norway. In addition to this financial support, we have applied for the AFAC music grant, and hoping for a positive answer.
The fund we have till now will be enough to cover the cost for flights, accommodation, fees, visas, local transportation and per diem for all the artists performing in Beirut & Beyond.
It will also cover the technical cost of the festival (sound engineering, light designer & operator...)
To also be a real scene for the development of the music infrastructure, the workshops and the lectures are an essential key. The rest of the money will then be used to cover all expenses for a legal professional from Europe, to give a workshop on the copyrighting, synchronization and more important topics on the legal aspect of music industry.
Your contribution will make the festival reach its main objective, and be a real platform, that musicians can trust to be their pathway to the international music scene.
The line up this edition is:
The first edition of Beirut&Beyond was a successful start, that what encouraged us, and made us believe that a showcase festival like Beirut&Beyond is truly needed in Lebanon.
