Eurosonic Group

Eurosonic is the partnership of EBU stations specialized in pop/rock programming. This unique partnership makes the EBU one of the major players on the current pop music scene by developing and launching projects with festivals, artists and record companies. Special events featuring the likes of Coldplay, Nick Cave, Black Keys, R.E.M, Iggy Pop, Radiohead and many others have been made available.

Members also support ESNS, the Eurosonic Festival in Groningen (The Netherlands), where EBU stations select and sponsor up-and-coming acts to perform at the showcase festival. The 2022 edition was held digitally from 19 to 22 January, with 25 Members taking part.

EBU Eurosonic stands for one thing: supporting and promoting pop in all its forms.
