If you gather all the up-and-coming talent from UK and Europe and mix them all together in one small town what do you get? EuroSonic Noorderslag. This is the event where promoters, festival bookers and industry types pursue the bands that are set to be big in the New Year.

Part of the Noorderslag Weekend in Holland, the event is a unique opportunity to see Dutch and European bands performing before a wide range of national and international parties.

During EuroSonic Noorderslag 2011 the town of Groningen will see over 220 bands perform across 32 venues with industry seminars and talks going on too.
