Artist Programme
Given that there are so many artists in Groningen this weekend, Eurosonic Noorderslag is dedicating a part of its conference entirely to composers, authors and artists. The Artist Programme consists of several panels, some of which are Dutch spoken.

Pop Policy
The Eurosonic Noorderslag Conference also devotes some of its programme partly to 'Pop Policy', with several subjects relevant to policy makers in the pop music sector. This goes for policies on a local, provincial and national level as well as across borders.
