A DIGITAL ESNS 2021
The showcase festival will be fully digitally for the first time. In collaboration with NPO 3FM, which previously hosted the digital edition of the Lowlands festival, ESNS will make the exclusive performances of 180+ up and coming European acts available on a digital platform via 3fm.nl/ESNS. The sets will be broadcast, across four days, available for free from January 13 — 16, 2021. The recordings will also be broadcast through EBU (European Broadcasting Union) radio stations across Europe.
The digital edition gives ESNS the opportunity to offer emerging European talent a large stage at Eurosonic with the Music Moves Europe Talent Awards ceremony on Friday, while Dutch talent takes centre stage on Saturday; when Noorderslag presents the traditional barometer of Dutch pop music.

The showcase part of the festival will be completely free. It’s recommended to register for the platform via esns.nl/tickets to get updates on new announcements and updates on the streams.
