A brief history of Live at Heart
It all began in 2010, when Live at Heart’s founders Anders Damberg and Johannes Nilsson wanted to create a space for local, unsigned bands to play for larger audiences. In it’s first year, Live at Heart featured 102 different acts and hosted gigs on 10 different venues around Örebro.
Over the years, Live at Heart has evolved into a creative industry conference and showcase festival – attended by hundreds of artists, filmmakers och creative professionals from all over the world. The event has grown into one of the biggest of it’s kind in all of Scandinavia, and has been listed as one of the most important industry events of the year by Imusican.
Showcasing the stars of tomorrow
Live at Heart is a showcase festival, meaning that we are showcasing the stars of tomorrow and giving promising creative talents the opportunity to get discovered and boost their carreers.
Our heart beats for music, film, business and tech
(yes, they go very well together)
Apart from hundreds of gigs, independent film screenings and seminars on subjects related to music and film – Live at Heart makes space for discussions, workshops and exhibitions on business, entrepreneurship and tech.
We believe in creating synergies between industries and bringing people together that otherwise might have never crossed ways. Through sharing insights, strategies and perspectives, new ideas and collaborations may evolve.
We call it Live at Heart Creative.
