SACEM Luxembourg, the Luxembourgish collective management organization for music rights, has been mandated by authors, composers and music publishers to issue licenses for the use of their music. It receives royalties and distributes them to the creators of the works disseminated. These royalties amount to the salary that pays for the author's work. Beside the collection and distribution of rights, SACEM Luxembourg helps to develop local projects with his “action culturelle”. In this context SACEM Luxembourg supports actively MUSIC LX.

CrissCrossEurope is the continuation of JazzPlaysEurope project. The idea is to create a network of jazz structures from several European countries (France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovakia), to encourage meetings between young musicians. Each structure identifies a young musician and submits other partners. The musicians come together to work together for several days, coached by a band leader: each musician brings compositions, exchange, and create a directory. Then each partner receives one or more concerts of this group within the festival and its regular programming.

In many meetings where the Consultative Commission SACEM Luxembourg defended the interests of composers and songwriters of Luxembourg it appeared that there is a serious lack of organization at national and international level.
Although some composers have been fighting for years to enforce the creative work in Luxembourg, one had to regret on many occasions that, unlike other European countries, there is no federation of Luxembourg composers in any form whatsoever. It has been necessary to join in a union that would defend the interests of all authors, all composers of music of all genresand across all stylistical borders. Therefore a new non- profit organisation FLAC (Luxembourg Federation of Authors and Composers) has been created recently.
This federation does not intend to substitute or add to existing structures, but rather to gather all genres: classical / contemporary, jazz / rock / pop, movie / pub, etc …. It will be the voice of all composers wherever necessary.

At the turn of the new millennium, the reputation of Dudelange as Luxembourg’s City of Jazz was already firmly rooted in its outstanding previous history. Relying on this pioneering work and its ultimate commitment to jazz, the cultural department of the City decided to create an international jazz festival doing justice to the dynamic image of Dudelange, and to defend with refueled fervor its cultural strategy by organizing a common platform for the artists, the public, the professionals and cultural workers, as well as the associations and societies interested in partnership.
To give a spiritual vocation (back) to the site, such was the goal of the founders of the Abbey of Neumünster Cultural Exchange Center when creating the program under the theme “dialogue of cultures, culture of dialogue”. The CCRN (Centre Culturel de Rencontre Abbaye de Neumunster) hosts concerts, ballets, live performances, seminars and expositions. It is a place of creation and reception. It is open to the general public, to a young public, to associations and to creators. And exchanges, meetings, collaborations, coproductions are the keystone to a unifying program.
Opened in 2007, Op Der Schmelz is a regional cultural meeting point which is based in the southern city of Dudelange. The team made it a place for "live cinema", literature performances, festivals based on multidisciplinary audio-visual performances and much more.

With its Main Hall, the Club, The Floor and the Rockhalcafe – the Rockhal – Centre de Musiques Amplifiées hosts everything from international arena productions to club size artists and emerging talents. As a public institution of the state of Luxembourg it serves as a concert hall, but is also a major concert promoter. Its Music & Resources Centre provides not only an infrastructure of rehearsal rooms, a recording studio and a media library but also a team of professionals who are dedicated to the support of emerging national artists helping them to proceed in their art, their performance and their knowledge. It’s because of the synergies acting as a concert promoter for big international touring acts as well as programming a club with an eclectic musical program on the one hand and the mission to develop and promote young emerging artists on the other, Rockhal hosts every year in November the SONIC VISIONS music conference and showcase festival.
Located between Belgium, France and Germany, SONIC VISIONS is a Music Conference & Festival that creates a platform for professionals all over the music industry as well as for the international audience. Since its very beginning in 2008, Sonic Visions has evolved into one of the Rockhal’s annual key events. By combining its two main activities as a concert promoter (by bringing international touring acts to Luxembourg) and as a Music & Resources centre (by acting as a structure that informs, guides and accompanies local bands and musicians) the Rockhal positions the SONIC VISIONS Music Conference & Showcase Festival as a platform where the industry actually gets to meet the artist and vice-versa. The Conference's Leitmotiv is "It's all about the Artist" as it really wants to focus on the main asset of the music industry and give artists the opportunity to get the information and resources they need to take their musical project to the next level. Previous editions included gigs by artists such as Sigur Ros, Fritz Kalkbrenner, St Vincent, Angus & Julia Stone, Kwabs, Asgeir and many more , as well as keynotes by music professionals such as Peter Jenner (manager – Pink Floyd, The Clash, Billy Bragg…), Keith Harris (manager – Stevie Wonder), Alan McGee (Creation Records) or Ross Robinson (producer - KoRn, Klaxons, Slipknot, The Cure...).
