Eurosonic is the best European showcase for new artists on the continent. It’s a great place for new European acts to be seen and heard by the industry. After its first round of acts shared a few months ago, 31 new acts have been added to January 2018’s lineup for Groningen in the Netherlands. The acts come from 25 countries and include Irish acts Jafaris (see him on Thursday at Future Proof), Ryan McMullan, David Keenan and Rosborough.

If you’re flying Aer Lingus in July look out for my profiles piece in the Cara in-flight magazine on six new Irish music acts doing the business and likely to continue doing so on planes all month.

Featured are profiles of Loah, Rusangano Family, David Keenan, Áine Cahill, Le Boom and Saint Sister.

The photos are by Tristan Hutchinson. Special thanks to Lucy White in Cara.

Read it on Issuu from page 46.
