So you can’t quite afford to fly all the way to Texas for South By South West? Well you needn’t worry for the annual Nooderslag/Eurosonic festival, industry schmooz-athon’s got your back.
Noorderslag began in 1986 as a one-night festival in De Oosterpoort featuring a feast of new Dutch talent. 1998 saw Eurosonic sneak its way in with a wagon full of talent homing from all the edges of Europe.Then the music industry got in on the satisfaction and brought 'very important' seminars with it.
It's the boiling point of predicted talent for the coming 12 months, and with over 180 bands playing live and 14,200 visitors, it's only going to get bigger.
