These include Alma, Ásgeir, Aurora, Dua Lipa, Hozier, HER, Mø, My Baby, Rejjie Snow, Lost Frequencies, Roosevelt, Royal Blood, Seinabo Sey and Vök, all of whom played at ESNS as up and coming talents. The event attracts more than 4,000 conference delegates from all sections of the entertainment industry, including representatives of over 400 festivals. Each year, ESNS stages more than 350 showcases alongside offering a full conference programme of around 150 panels, and keynotes, alongside multiple networking opportunities. The event also hosts annual meetings, pitch sessions, networking dinners, parties and the very latest thinking and technical innovation in the music, media, interactive and production industries.
