Preview: Eurosonic Noorderslag 2013

By on Wednesday, 9th January 2013 at 1:32 pm

logo-EuroSonicToday through until Sunday (the 9th to the 12th January 2013), Eurosonic Noorderslag 2013 kicks off 5 days of European music, European artists, international music and interactive industry professionals and organisations.

It takes place in Groningen, the Netherlands, the biggest city in the north of the country. Its format is similar to the Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City and SXSW in that there are dedicated portions to a conference program for industry network and knowledge sharing and gobs and gobs of showcases featuring the best of Europe’s and international artists.

But Eurosonic also hosts two awards shows, both taking place tonight. The European Border Breakers Awards will be hosted by Jools Holland (yes, he crosses the border for awards shows, ladies and gentlemen); ten European debuting artists, who have been successful beyond national borders, will be recognised for their achievements. You can watch the awards show live here; it all kicks off at 6 PM Central European time (that’s 1 hour ahead of British time, folks). Or you can just come back here and watch it in the embed below. Following the first awards show will be the European Festival Awards, where the best European festivals will be honoured, with the aim of promoting the great diversity of European festivals.


Festival wristbands are sold out, but delegate passes are still available here at the price of 375 euros. Some can’t be missed bands on today’s (Wednesday’s) schedule include Dutch Uncles, who will be releasing their latest album ‘Out of Touch in the Wild’ (review here) on Monday; BBC Sound of 2013 nominees and Gary Barlow’s favourites Kodaline (pictured at top) and Noel Gallagher protege Jake Bugg.

Live Gig Videos: Two Door Cinema Club play acoustic version of ‘Sleep Alone’ and more for Danish station 3FM

By on Thursday, 26th July 2012 at 4:00 pm

I think it’s safe to say that with Two Door Cinema Club‘s second album ‘Beacon’ out in September, we can expect to see lots of Two Door-shaped exclusives leading up to the new release. I don’t know about you, but the sight of a woman and her knickers peeking out of a hole in the ceiling is a bit much, yes? Hopefully, we will be able to chat with the guys at some point to get the scoop on the album art and of course, to talk about the new material. Gosh we’re excited!

Yesterday the band Tweeted that they’d been in to see the folks at 3FM, a radio station in Holland, to perform an acoustic version of new track ‘Sleep Alone’. But when I got to the landing page for the video, I noticed the station had also recorded Two Door playing ‘Undercover Martyn’ and ‘What You Know’, so I thought I’d embed all of them here to keep your Thursday afternoon going. Enjoy them below.


Live Gig Video: Lisa Hannigan and crew go on tour in Holland

By on Friday, 15th June 2012 at 4:00 pm

Earlier this month, filmmaker Myles O’Reilly accompanied Lisa Hannigan and all the people that make her live shows possible on a short tour of the Netherlands. The result: a nice tour diary shot beautifully and with snippets of gigs and soundchecks during this mini-tour. Watch it below.



Live Gig Video: The Crookes perform ‘Chorus of Fools’ in a Dutch junk shop

By on Friday, 9th December 2011 at 2:00 pm

Sheffield’s Crookes were entirely out of their element for this live performance – in a junk shop in Holland – but judging from this film by they took any reservations in stride and pulled of a beautiful (and relaxed, you’ll see what I mean) version of ‘Chorus of Fools’. Watch it below.
