What the artists say:

Royal Blood: ”Eurosonic Noorderslag was our first European show so we’ll always remember it. A very important and well organised event at the start of the year, highly recommend it for new artists”.

Kadebostany: ”Our show at Eurosonic was a success and solidified our reputation as a live band, it helped us reach many professionals of the scene at once. For a band like us who tour a lot, this showcase was like a ”shortcut” to reach influental people in the live world who didn’t know of us yet”.

MØ: ”Eurosonic Noorderslag is a great, and cool festival to play. Especially for up comers! It has helped me two years in a row getting attention from cool media and bookers from badass festivals in Europe. When you’re there you feel the excitement for new music amongst the people participating in the festival no matter if it’s the guests, the scouts or the artists”.
