ESNS, established in 1986

ESNS started out as Dutch band competition Noorderslag in 1986, and grew to be the European music platform by adding Eurosonic in 1996. The festival has become a true institution for discovering emerging artists and the platform for the European music sector to meet and exchange knowledge.
