Switzerland will be the focus country of the 2020 edition of Eurosonic. We are excited about this wonderful opportunity to showcase the Swiss music scene and introduce some of the artists and bands that represent our creativity and diversity! Switzerland may not be the birthplace of rock’n’roll, or hip-hop, or electronic music, yet we have world-class artists in all of those genres – and then some!
As focus country we will receive higher visibility and have more meeting places and work spaces at our disposal to promote the Swiss music industry and its activities, its culture, and its companies.
Would you like to promote your organisation in Groningen?
Please contact us! We are still accepting new partners and sponsors.
