The 33rd edition of Nooderslag/Eurosonic festival takes place from January 16th to January 19th 2019 in the city of Groningen, Netherlands. The country partners this year are the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
A major showcase festival for music professionals in Europe, ESNS attracts over 4.000 professional delegates, including 400 international festivals, and showcases around 350 European artists for over 40.000 visitors total.
The ETEP network of the 100 most important festivals in Europe meets every year at Eurosonic to discover new talent. In addition, over 40 national radio stations from the UER network will also take part in the event; while its partnership with Keychange, a pioneering international initiative which encourages festivals to achieve a 50:50 gender balance by 2022, openly addresses issues regarding diversity on multiple levels.
