The conference and showcase festival ESNS (Eurosonic Noorderslag) in Groningen will now be a fully digital edition in 2021! Given the current situation and government guidelines, organizing a physical edition was no longer feasible.

With ‘The road to recovery‘ as the theme of the conference, ESNS aims to bring the industry together, regain confidence, face the current crisis and make a constructive contribution to the future of the European music industry.
