New Video: Catalan Bands at Eurosonic and ETEP Programme 2018

The Catalan bands Mueveloreina (Helsinkipro), Museless (Luup Records), Odina (El Segell del Primavera) and The Zephyr Bones (La Castanya), selected by Eurosonic, are taking part in the European ETEP programme in 2018. Check out our new video and take a peek at their experience at Eurosonic.

The European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP) has the aim of facilitating the movement and signing of European groups at festivals around the continent. Currently more than 100 festivals from 44 countries participate. Currently more than 100 festivals from 44 countries participate, including Mercat de Música Viva de Vic, Primavera Sound and VIDA festival.

ETEP member festivals attending Eurosonic receive economic incentives to hire at least one act to perform at each edition (from a country other than the one where the festival is held). This system is supported by the European Union, the EBU radio broadcasters and the European festival association YOUROPE.

ETEP uses as platform the Eurosonic Noorderslag, one of the most influential festivals and a leading professional meeting place for indie and pop-rock music taking place in Groningen (Netherlands), to showcase the bands and gather the ETEP festivals.

With the aim of supporting and promoting Catalan artists, the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies (ICEC) joined ETEP and since 2012 has supported the Catalan bands chosen each year:
