Eurosonic Noorderslag 2021 begins
The Eurosonic Noorderslag 2021 festival starts today. At this time in past years, we were already travelling by bus to Groningen in the Netherlands; the facilities for the large Slovak team were the cabins on common ships. Due to the current situation, we will only go to see concerts in the virtual space, yet again there will be quite some things to discover. The largest European showcase and conference will bring more than 180 concerts and panels in its on-line version. The line-up is extremely varied, so we would like to ask you to send us suggestions on who to go to see.
