Eurosonic Festival celebrates new year by showcasing new talent

Europe’s fresh musical talent goes on stage in January at the Eurosonic Festival at the Oosterpoort Theatre in Groningen, the Netherlands.

The European Border Breakers Awards (EBBA) open the festival which runs from Wednesday 14/1 to Friday 16/1.

EBU Member radio broadcasters NPO (Netherlands), ARD (Germany), SR (Sweden) and BBC (United Kingdom) will provide concert recordings via the Euroradio network. A webcast of the event will be offered for live or delayed use by EBU Members on Euroradio 2See.  

Head of Euroradio Christian Vogg says the partnership between Eurosonic, Euroradio Members and music professionals creates the ideal platform for audiences to discover new talent.

“Once again, Euroradio is at the heart of the festival with 24 EBU Members supporting 28 acts,” said Mr Vogg. “There’s a huge amount of good music emerging across Europe. These awards help stimulate the cross-border circulation of music and celebrate Europe's diversity and every year,  Euroradio Community.”
