Eurosonic Noorderslag | The ‘Made in France’ artists

Pop music is always on the move, defying borders and breaking down boundaries, and not just escaping the limits of countries an cities, but also the barriers between people. The Eurosonic Noorderslag festival was founded to encourage and promote the circulation of European music on the continent and beyond.

One of Europe’s major showcase festivals, Eurosonic Noorderslag usually takes place in the venues of Groningen in the Netherlands and attracts more than 40,000 people every year. This year it is being held from 13th to 16th January 2021 for a 35th edition that is taking place online.

On the programme this year:

  • the Eurosonic Noorderslag festival (ESNS, 13th-16th January)
  • The European Music Week platform (8th-12th January)
  • the MMETA (Music Moves Europe Talent Awards, 15th January)
