ESNS (Eurosonic Noorderslag), a platform for emerging European music, has confirmed a further 105 up-and-coming European acts to perform at its annual four-day showcase festival and music conference. 

Ada Oda from Belgium, France’s Birrd, Elmiene from the UK, Italy’s Elasi and Spain’s Los Sara Fontan are just some of the artists due to perform at the showcase festival.

Further acts include the Netherlands’ Adriaan Persons, Germany’s Amistat and Arny Margret from Iceland.

Next year’s event will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ESNS Exchange programme, which has nurtured talent through its network over the last two decades to support, inspire and promote European, and Dutch, musical talent.

ESNS Exchange will host a number of events and panels during the event, which will take place in Groningen, in the Netherlands. The entire event will take place between January 17-20, with tickets for the festival and the entire event available to purchase.

Originally founded in 1986, the ESNS showcase festival has helped to kickstart a number of careers, most recently promoting the likes of Arlo Parks, Dua Lipa, Fontaines DC, Sigrid and Wet Leg.
