European Broadcasting Union
The European Broadcasting union (EBU) is the world’s largest association of national broadcasters. As in previous years, the EBU will be broadcasting radio shows live from Eurosonic Noorderslag to several European countries. On top of that, last year the EBBA tv-show was broadcast by 16 EBU-member public broadcasters around Europe.

Laurent Marceau, in charge of Pop Music at EURORADIO (EBU):
"There is a great deal of exciting music coming from many different places in Europe. This event offers a truly unique platform for up-and-coming bands and artists, and we are proud that EURORADIO is at the heart of it. No less than 24 EBU radio stations will be involved next January, supporting 28 new acts, that's what you call real commitment. But there's more, much more. Thanks to a special international collaboration, all the concerts will be made available on all platforms, offering European audiences unique access to the sounds of these emerging talents. Roll on Groningen!"
