The Bridge for Balkan Music

The mission of MOST is to boost the music market of the Balkans by connecting and supporting people in the world music market. We support artists, young managers, festivals, music venues and institutions. MOST builds a bridge connecting the South East European region and the global music market, a bridge made up of personal connections, experience and exchange.
