JUST ADDED: Up to 3 additional slots for Sonicbids artists!

EuroSonic is the European showcase festival for new talent from Europe. It is part of the Noorderslag Weekend, both a festival and a conference that attracts 2500 professionals from the European live music industry to Groningen and 15,000 audience.

From January 10-12, 2008, 185 acts play EuroSonic at 20 different venues throughout the city of Groningen in the Netherlands. At least 8 slots are reserved for Sonicbids members from Europe. Artists who live 1,000 km or more from Groningen are eligible for a 1,000EUR travel subsidy (artists from further distances may be eligible for more money - this is up to the discretion of EuroSonic). The festival provides lodging and production for all selected artists. One member of each act will have access to visit the conference during the day. Last years Sonicbids acts were The Film (Greece), Reykjavik (Iceland), Hot Gossip (Italy), The Je Ne Sais Quoi (Sweden) and Disco Drive (Italy)

At the conference, panels deal with subjects concerning music and the European Music Industry. Some highlights from 2007 include: Cultural Policies of Europe, Doing Business in Italy, and Ethics and New Business Models.

All genres of music are accepted. Submissions are open to European artists only .

Please note: Once artist selections have been made, Sonicbids and EuroSonic randomly select at least 8 artists that have been invited and live 1,000 km or more from Groningen. Once their distance to Groningen has been confirmed and they have proof of their travel arrangements, they will be paid half of the 1,000EUR travel subsidy. The other half will be paid once the act has played at EuroSonic.
