After two successful pilot projects the Music Cities Network is launching LEC: The Link Up Euro Connection (LEC).

LEC is a brand new 7-month program with European co-creation and co-production between 12 Hip Hop artists and producers from Groningen, Manchester, Aarhus and Berlin.
During LEC, young music creatives work together during 4 co-creation weeks in the cities mentioned above.

During the co-creation camps artists from at least four different countries will meet, make music and perform during four different co-creation camps. Together they will work on songs in the studios facilitated by LEC, after which they'll work on a live show and perform these songs at a relevant festival or venue at the end of the week.

LEC’s co-creation and co-production weeks are organized by the transnationally acting Music Cities Network in collaboration with the following partners:

  • Noordstaat in Groningen during ESNS, The Netherlands (January 16-22, 2022)

  • Manchester Music City in collaboration with Brighter Sound, England (March 2022)

  • Promus and Institute for X in Aarhus during the SPOT Festival, Denmark (April/ May 2022)

  • Musicboard Berlin and Alvozay Collective during Fête de La Musique in Berlin, Germany (June 2022)

LEC’s aim is to pave the way for new and innovative ways for artists to improve creatively. Professionalize and grow your network in Europe's Music Business. LEC is co-funded by Creative Europe.
