Eurosonic Festival

Euroradio's 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 Eurosonic Noorderslag and Europe's public service broadcasters, the Eurosonic Festival has grown into a 3-day extravaganza with nearly 200 European bands playing at 20 venues.

The 2022 edition will be held digitally from 19 to 22 January, with 25 members taking part.

You can follow the festival online on the ESNS (Eurosonic Noorderslag) dedicated website.
