Selected and presented this year for ESNS21 by local EBU, radio 100,7, is psych-pop quartet TUYS. The band's songs are pervaded by distorted bass lines, entangling hooks and eccentric dynamics that make you want to see them live. They have toured throughout Europe, playing festivals including MS Dockville, Reeperbahn, The Great Escape and have supported The 1975, Everything Everything, The Kooks, and Thirty Seconds To Mars, but remain hungry for more. Watch the band perform selections from their latest EP, A Curtain Call For Dreamers, Friday, January 15 at 20:25, recorded and broadcast live at Kulturfabrik in Esch. More info here.

ESNS has a proven track record for helping break new acts on the international live music scene. The showcase event has been responsible for kickstarting the international careers of artists such as Shame, Her, Alma, Roosevelt, Aurora, Dua Lipa and many more. This is not only done by offering these acts a stage during ESNS but also by supporting them after the event by way of the European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP).
