‘Tough Decision’: ESNS Goes All-Digital Again
– ESNS 2022 will be an all-digital event once again.
The organizers of Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS), one of Europe’s leading showcase festivals and music conference, announced that the 36th edition will once again take place as an online-only event in light of the Dutch governments most recent announcement of new coronavirus restrictions.
Niels Knelis – Hard to believe that the Grote Markt, usually one of the most buzzing places during ESNS, will not host a massive stage in 2022.
The team intends to build on that success, managing director Dago Houben commented: “ESNS is of great importance to the entire music industry and especially to European musicians. It is therefore essential to carry out our function of providing the best possible platform for European pop music. Earlier this year we saw that the reach of a digital edition can be huge and that we were able to make a difference to an artist’s career. We are therefore pleased to give all booked ESNS artists the exposure they deserve with the help of our media partners.”
