2012 has been a great year for British talent and the new year looks even better as UK artists prepare for Eurosonic Norderslag 2013. Luke Sital-Singh, Jake Bugg and Ghostpoet are set to appear at the four-day event in January.
The Eurosonic festival is a showcase for European talent, where some of the most exciting new artists perform in front of thousands of people. Luke Sital-Singh is just one of the UK artists performing and he's recently earned acclaim for his single 'Fail For You'. Playing at the festival will open him up to a wider European audience.
Part of the success of the event is down to the Noorderslag Foundation's European Talent Exchange Program. ETEP has helped bring a total of 1359 shows by 495 European artists 60 ETEP festivals since the program began, which means that the best of up-and-coming British talent gets a huge platform for exposure.
Dry the River were on of the bands at last year's Eurosonic and they say the booking was crucial in helping them to step into Europe: "Playing at Eurosonic Noorderslag helped us incredibly over the year and we've been booked at a bunch of festivals in Europe and this summer. It can be difficult for bands to figure out a way into Europe, especially the festival circuit, and Eurosonic was a springboard to put us in front of promoters, who then got behind us."
The full line-up of British artists is:
AlunaGeorge, Andy Burrows, Bastille, Champs, China Rats, Chvrches, Elephant, Foxes, Frightened Rabbit, Gabriel Bruce, Ghostpoet, Holy Mountain, Jake Bugg, Kwes. Live, Laura Mvula, Luke Sital-Singh, Molotov Jukebox, Monki, Nick Mulvey, Nina Nesbitt, Palma Violets, Phantom Limb, Public Service Broadcasting, Rudimental LIVE, S O H N, Splashh, Stubborn Heart, Temples, Treetop Flyers, Will and the People.
