First Round Of Artists Confirmed For Eurosonic Noorderslag


GRONINGEN, NL (VIP-News) — Eurosonic Noorderslag 2017, that takes place in Groningen in January, has confirmed the first 28 names for the festival programme.

The event will present the most relevant new European acts and is actively supported and broadcast by 27 radio stations of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) – that makes Eurosonic Noorderslag also one of the biggest radio events in Europe.

“We always see a number of acts standing out each year,” says Eurosonic booker Robert Meijerink. “Of the bands playing at the 2016 edition of Eurosonic, Norwegian singer AURORA and Belgian act Lost Frequencies have done incredibly well over the last year. They really broke through internationally.” Creative director Peter Smidt concludes: “That is exactly what Eurosonic Noorderslag stands for.
Giving bands who have a certain success in their home countries a push to break through internationally. And the EBU stations are very important for that.’

Laurent Marceau, in charge of pop music at Euroradio (EBU) complimented Eurosonic Noorderslag: “For us, this is the event to discover what happens with bands and acts in other European countries. Eurosonic always brings an edgy programme together, one that always reflects the state of pop music across a broad range of European countries, as well as on European radio. We are really proud the European Broadcasting Union is part of this unique event.”
