ESNS 2025

Applications for artists are now open

Each January, Eurosonic-Noorderslag introduces 350 emerging European artists to more than 40,000 music fans and more than 4,000 music industry professionals, including 400 international festivals. During the day, the conference hosts more than 150 panel discussions, interviews, keynotes and much more on pressing issues and the need for social change in the music industry. In the evening, European acts will perform at different venues in the heart of Groningen from Wednesday through Friday. And on Saturday, emerging Dutch artists take center stage during Noorderslag at De Oosterpoort.

ESNS has proven essential in helping new European acts break through into live music scenes across Europe and beyond. Last year's Belgian line-up included Ada Oda, Amber Broos, Ão, BLUAI, Don Kapot, Hippotraktor, Kleine Crack & Slagter, Kuna Maze, Loverman, Meltheads, Mickael Karkousse, ML, Pommelien Thijs, Porcelain ID, Promis3 and Reinel Bakole.
