Musicians line up for the launch of the Official European Charts


Chart topping girl band, Stooshe, Matt Cardle, Debra Debs, Sway, were just a few musicians who attended the launch of the Official European Charts last night at JuJu London in Chelsea.

The Official European Charts launch is set to revolutionise the music industry as the biggest and only weekly countdown of the best selling singles and albums across Europe.
The ever changing state of the music industry calls for bold inventors, digital creatives who think outside the box and an infusion of investment to drive ideas into reality.

Chart Nation, the multi-million pound global research and charts company behind OEC invested heavily into the research and development of the Official European Charts platform from as far back as 2009. With offices and partners across 15 European cities including ; London, Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich, and many more. The OEC has restructured the dated mechanics of the charts industry inline with the new digital , interactive and social media age.

PR Manager for the Official European Charts, Steve Campbell commented; It is a great day for music, and a greater day for European musicians worldwide. Europe has an amazing array of talent and often because there has never been a destination for European music. It made it impossible to fully appreciate the great music and talent of musicians across Europe. The Official European Charts will provide the essential and only destination to find out what the biggest selling singles and albums are and in the same light provide a gateway for music fans to discover new music through our digital album and singles charts.

The Official European Charts , digital singles and album platform will provide independent artists, record labels and professional musicians with the opportunity to register their release date and release their singles directly into the chart nation platform, with the top 100 countdown from the Official European Digital Singles Charts and Official European Digital Album Charts determined jointly by the amount of unique streams and unique downloads on the OEC site
