The Eurosonic Noorderslag conference is all about creating an experience. On the one hand, the programming provides in depth information and discussion. On the other hand, the conference will touch on lighter subjects and provide the delegates with occasions to relax and have fun.

Ray Cokes Revue

Ray Cokes journeys back to Groningen for two special showcases featuring Dutch and international artists. In previous shows Ray welcomed guests including Foxes, Ewert and the Two Dragons, Triggerfinger and Blaudzun. Ray Cokes changed the face of television in the 90’s with his innovative live show on MTV – Most Wanted. Since then, he has shared his passion for a good tune through various live music shows on Belgian, French and German TV. Ray Cokes host two shows, Saturday afternoon at Grand Theatre.


On Thursday and Friday delegates can get a clean shave or new haircut by the fellows of Schorem Haarsnijder & Barbier, an old school barbershop specialized in traditional haircuts and hot towel straight razor shaves. The barbershop will be a place to relax, proving a vintage atmosphere while enjoying genuine craftsmanship. On Saturday night the Barbershop will provide its services to the festival audience during Noorderslag. Watch this video to get a feel of Schorem Haarsnijder & Barbier.
