Eurosonic Group

Eurosonic is the partnership of EBU stations specialized in youth programming. This unique partnership makes the EBU one of the major players on the contemporary pop music scene by developing and launching projects with festivals, artists and record companies, as well as broadcasting major events, such as festivals like Roskilde, Benicassim, Paléo or Transmusicales de Rennes.

Members also support the Eurosonic Festival in Groningen (The Netherlands), where EBU stations select and sponsor up-and-coming acts to perform at the showcase festival. In 2017, some 26 EBU radio organizations will send 29 bands and artists to this annual event.

The Euroradio Eurosonic Conference takes place every two years. The last edition took place in Barcelona on 27-28 May 2015.
