For European acts seeking exposure on the European festival circuit, it would appear that Eurosonic is the showcase that matters.

Italia Wave acts Julie Feeney, Enter Shikari, Shitdisco, Tunng and the good-time, vodka-soaked, klezmer-ska of Russia’s 14-strong Leningrad were first talent-spotted at the Groningen event last January.

Bands who wish to apply for Eurosonic and obtain information about its European Talent Exchange Program (ETEP) can do so online. Closing date for applications for the January 2008 event is September 4.
