Noorderslag drops the first names for the 2019 edition! ESNS is the biggest showcase festival of Europe and offers a stage to European artists over four days. The festival is divided in Eurosonic and Noorderslag. Eurosonic is taking place the first three days during which European talent takes the stage in more than 30 venues in the city centre of Groningen. After that, Noorderslag is taking place in De Oosterpoort where Dutch talent gets the chance to present itself to the public. Noorderslag has announced the first acts in their line-up. There are, of course, a lot of new names but also some well known ones. We’ve made the youtube playlist below to introduce their music to you.
Rondé: Five letters. Five band members. The Spanish conjugation of coming together. With a fresh indie pop sound.
Jeangu Macrooy: Like last year
Donna Blue: West Coast Summer vibes in the cold North
Feng Suave: The soulful vocal melodies, alluding to the 60s and 70s, and punchy bass lines make for a warm, psychedelic deluge of airwaves embellished with dreamy effects
Jiri11: Creative jack of all trades, consummate musician and ringleader of ANBU Gang Records Jiri11 is going solo with one single ambition: to conquer the world
Kita Menari: Spread the message to break free and celebrate life with joyous uplifting indie pop
Marlene Bakker: One of a kind singer/songwriter and blessed with a stunning deep voice. Her indie pop music has an entirely unique place within the music industry because she sings in her own dialect.
Nona: In her early twenties, but with the voice of an old soul, withered, full of raw emotion
Young Ellens: No-one is climbing faster in the Dutch rap game
