Odd co-incidence: leading new music showcase festivals Eurosonic and SXSW will both turn 30 in 2016. The Dutch festival is first off the blocks with the best new European acts taking to stages in Groningen from January 13 to 15. Eurosonic is also first off the blocks in terms of announcements too, with the first 30 acts just announced.

These include Irish act The Academic (one of our tips for 2014 who have been nominated by 2fm), KATÉA, Tom Fire, Alle Farben, Elias, Dolores Haze, Bastian Baker, NAO and Violet Skies. Spofity playlist of all 30 acts below
