Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history? ESNS has been founded over 30 years ago in order to stimulate and push the circulation of European music across the European continent as well as beyond. In order to obtain this goal, ESNS organises a festival and conference in Groningen, the Netherlands, for four days. During these four days close to 40.000 visitors from over 40 countries come together to meet up, learn, discover new talent and network.
– and a bit about Eurosonic’s last edition and what are the plans for the year ahead? After a very successful edition in January 2018 when we focused on Denmark, ESNS recently announced a first-ever double focus, on the Czech Republic and Slovakia for its 2019 edition.
What are your favourite Danish acts? Efterklang, Marching Church, MØ, The Raveonettes, Velvet Volume.
