With a solidarity-based approach and always promoting its members’ initiatives, the federation focuses in particular on the sharing and pooling of experiences (organisation, bookings…) and communication tools, on the promotion of creation and artistic development and on studying the evolution of the festival industry as well as its representation in professional bodies such as institutions and civil societies.

The network gathers artistically independent festivals that are all conscious of the well being of their visitors and artists. They are dedicated to their region while being open to national and transnational cooperation. These festivals are cultural actors who are deeply rooted in the cultural and economic landscape of each of their respective areas.
They favour values such as brotherhood, citizenship, the sense of sharing, eco- friendliness and artistic boldness. The network may coopt to invite other events as well if voted by a two-thirds majority at the board of directors.
