Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) is the main meeting point for the European music industry. The festival is renowned for being a springboard for emerging artists on the international music scene. The 2021 edition showcased four Italian artists: Nava, an Italian-Persian singer with hypnotic and visceral sounds; the psychedelic-garage trio Bee Bee Sea; Gold Mass, a singer-songwriter with dark and spiritual sounds; and the iconic performer M¥SS KETA.
‘Futura’ is the project created to support the promotion of Italian music abroad, as a result of the collaboration between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Italia Music Lab foundation. It consists of a music video archive that includes performances by Italian artists who over the past two years have played during the digital editions of many showcase festivals around the world.
