Euroradio Eurosonic Festival has become a favourite amongst artists, public broadcasters, music professionals and music lovers to discover and showcase exciting new up-and-coming acts. Past festivals have included appearances by such artists as Franz Ferdinand, Phoenix, First Aid Kit, Selah Sue, Arlo Parks, and many others.

Initially launched in 1986 as a one-day event to promote Dutch and Belgian bands, EBU radio stations joined the party in 1999. With the help of our partners ESNS (Eurosonic Noorderslag) and Europe's public service broadcasters, the Eurosonic Festival has grown into a 3-day extravaganza.

The 2024 edition took place on 17-20 January, with 31 Acts supported by 28 public service broadcasters, marking the 25th anniversary of EBU Music's partnership with ESNS. All EBU Acts are available in MUS under RM/2024/01/02/01-31, as well as some of the non-EBU Acts (RM/2024/02/04/01-14).
