A vibrant, ambitious and welcoming showcase of the best Euregional music talent. The festival will take place in the evening of Saturday, September 30th in Sittard (The Netherlands). Expect loads of Dutch, Belgian and German pop acts, spread across 17 venues in the city center and in local pop venue ‘Poppodium Volt’. The aim is to program approximately 75 pop acts of all genres from the Euregion.
Time: 20:00 to 04:00
The conference focuses on the music industry of the Dutch province Limburg and will be Dutch spoken. Nevertheless, the conference is an excellent event to meet new people and to get informed about the most recent (dutch) music policy, talent development and music education.
Prior to the festival, we organize a networking dinner for our Euregional network of programmers, bookers and talent scouts. A dinner with colleagues from the Euregion where they can catch up and of course a great opportunity to get to know new colleagues from across the border. After the networking dinner all these professionals are free to enjoy the DVERS showcasefestival; eighty talented acts from the Euregion which will present themselves, spread accross seventeen different stages through the center of Sittard.
An excellent networking possibility with a perfect connection of the showcase festival, where new talents can be discovered! This networking dinner is for invited guests only.
Location: Ernesto’s Cantina Mexicana
Time: 18.00 to 19.45
