Trupa Trupa (Poland)

Polish indie collective Trupa Trupa played at ESNS in 2017. Since then, they have been touring Europe and gained a cult following. Their last year’s album B Flat A was reviewed by Pitchfork, describing the record as more sophisticated than simply “rant’n’roll post-punk” it might seem to be at the first spin.

Altin Gün (Turkey, Netherlands)

Formed in 2016, Turkish psychedelic rockers Altin Gün are now favourites of open-air events all around the globe. Their appearance at Eurosonic in 2021 helped them to reach out to the wider circles of the industry. It was followed by shows at Primavera Sound, Wide Awake and End of the Road, to name just a few.

Eurosonic Noorderslag will take place from 17 to 20 January 2024 in Groningen. More information is on the official website.
