The European Border Breakers Awards are about breaking down borders and recognising emerging European rock, pop and dance artists who achieved success in other countries than their own. To do this, 10 European artists will receive an EBBA during a spectacular TV-show presented by BBC-legend Jools Holland. The show, recorded at Stadsschouwburg Groningen and broadcast throughout Europe, is organised in the context of Eurosonic Noorderslag, on the opening evening of Europe’s biggest live music industry gathering of the year.

Previous winners include now established artists such as Adele, Mumford and Sons, Kodaline, Woodkid, Disclosure, Nico & Vinz, Selah Sue, Damien Rice, Agnes Obel, Caro Emerald and many more.

These unique European music awards are funded under the European Union (EU) Creative Europe programme. With the EBBA, the European Union wishes to highlight the success of 10 debuting European artists in selling albums and touring outside their home territory. These music awards aim to highlight Europe’s great cultural and linguistic diversity in popular music. The EBBA provide the opportunity for the public to discover emerging European artists, and for their music to be spread and enjoyed across Europe.
