ESNS Exchange 20 years

At ESNS24, the ESNS Exchange programme celebrates its 20-year anniversary of supporting new European talent. The European talent exchange programme traces its roots back to 2003. The primary objective of ESNS Exchange was, and still is, to forge a robust network among stakeholders, with the aim of facilitating, supporting, inspiring, and promoting the unrestricted global circulation of creative European musical talent.

ESNS Exchange will host several events and panels during ESNS in January. ESNS Exchange is funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission and is organised in collaboration with Yourope, the export offices and the media partner EBU.

Saturday at ESNS24

ESNS shifts its focus to the Netherlands on Saturday. Industry delegates will return to De Oosterpoort for a third day of the music conference on Saturday, making it the main business hub for the European music industry during the entire three-day music conference. Starting at 3 PM, the full-day conference programme blends seemlessly into a buzzing music event for the annual Noorderslag festival, where Dutch acts traditionally showcase their talent. The full-day programme at De Oosterpoort makes Noorderslag more efficient and also upscales its hospitality towards industry delegates.
