Eurosonic Noorderslag is dedicated to the newest European artists. The most promising acts in their homeland, but often unknown outside the borders of their home country. The festival is the main European showcase festival and is supported by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Yourope. For Eurosonic Noorderslag 2014 Austria was named as the Focus country.

Each year ETEP brings together the leading European festivals, radio and other media and stimulates them to ‘exchange’ a selection of artists. Since the start of the ETEP program in 2003 a total of 1646 shows by 605 European artists were presented at the now 80 ETEP festivals.
