About The European Festival Awards:
The European Festival Awards is the only event solely dedicated to recog- nising the achievements of the event organisers and performing artists that generate billions of euros for local economies and brighten up the summer for tens of millions of festival- goers each year. Decided by a combination of public vote and industry juries, the awards are presented at a sold-out ceremony that takes place on the opening night of Eurosonic Noorderslag. This year saw a record breaking edition with over 1.2 million votes, and more than 350 festivals taking part from 35 different European countries. TheEuropean Festival Awards were established in 2009 in co-operation with Festival Awards Ltd, Yourope (the European Festival Association) and Eurosonic Noorderslag. The European Festival Awards show takes place in De Oosterpoort in Groningen, NL.
