//ABOUT BEIRUT AND BEYOND
Dedicated to promoting the Arab region’s independent music with emphasis on strong artistic merit, B&B was founded in 2013, in partnership with Oslo World, and quickly succeeded in positioning itself as a key player on the map of regional festivals and showcases.
As a platform for meetings, showcases and exchange, B&B encourages networking and collaboration. It furthermore aims to offer solutions to the urgent needs of the young Arab independent music scene, such as the necessity to provide outlets for its bustling artistic productions.
//ABOUT BEIRUT AND BEYOND INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL
BBIMF is a yearly showcase festival that aims to promote and support both rising and established artists from the MENA region and beyond. We always thrive to shed light on new talent, mix genres, and respect gender equality.
The urgent needs of the bustling state of artistic production in the region, which is hardly matched by an infrastructure that drives it to more sustainable grounds, gave birth to our yearly professional program. Happening in parallel to the artistic program, it aims to equip local artists with the right tools to carve their musical future. This is done by making the resources and experience of international professionals available to local artists through a program of panels, workshops, Meet the Artists sessions and more.
