The Danish initiative to share music with Germany



What does NEUSTART do?

Get started, get connected!

Did you know that Denmark supports transportation for touring bands and artists? NEUSTART may also be able to support Danish bands playing in Germany in other ways. Get in touch and learn more if you are planning concerts between Denmark and Germany.

Need a plug for a venue, festival, agency or artist? Get in touch to get connected in both countries.

Evolve and produce!

Are you an artist looking for a residency? Or are you an institution searching artists to match your open call? Let us help you find the right residency or artist in Denmark or Germany.

Stay posted in our News section and Instagram for dates, programmes, co-writing sessions, and open calls.  

Know your colleagues!

Do you need a match for your project? We may be able to help. 

Are you planning music business events in Denmark or Germany? We may be able to support and help you bond with new partners. 

Stay posted in our News section and Instagram for dates, events, workshops, and more. 

Make us smarter!

Share your knowledge and learn from others. Questions like: How do you help balance gender inequality? How do you work in hybrid formats during the pandemic? How do you make a living from music in the age of streaming? 

Contribute to mutual knowledge sharing. Submit your research or share your experiences. Stay posted for open calls and events, and be part of the Danish-German effort to learn together.

Travel Support: Germany Visits Denmark

The Danish NEUSTART initiative is now open for applications to the travel support pool ‘Germany visits Denmark’. If you want to visit Denmark’s music scene and you work in an organisation, an agency, label, or independently, you may apply NEUSTART for covering your travel expenses from Germany. 

The purpose of the pool is to make it easier for German based music professionals to visit concerts, festivals, seminars in Denmark or finally have their meeting with a Danish partner in person.

We believe physical presence is an essential part of experiencing music and making strong professional relationships. This is an open invitation to our German based colleagues to come say hi and experience in person what the Danish music scene is all about.


You may apply if:

    • You work with music in Germany  
    • You have a specific purpose with your visit in Denmark (not necessarily by invitation or with a prearranged meeting etc.) 
    • You are NOT travelling to Denmark to perform as an artist yourself. 

Please note: applications will be evaluated by member organisations of the NEUSTART initiative. You can learn more about them here. There is no deadline for applications – the pool is open until it is empty.  

(Please be patient with responses to application in the summer months as overlapping holiday weeks may affect response-time).

Stay posted in our News section and follow us on Instagram for dates, events, workshops and more. 

NEUSTART is a joined initiative by the Danish genre organisations, Music Export Denmark and the Danish embassy in Berlin. The purpose of the initiative is to help a new start for the music scenes and strengthen the cooperation on music between Denmark and Germany.
