XpoNorth is part of Cooperation Project EXCITE, a partnership of ten European festivals in Sweden, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Luxembourg, Scotland, plus associate festivals in Portugal, Spain, Slovenia and Poland. The project aims to support emerging artists and music businesses to develop high-value international opportunities earlier in their careers/ development, among other deliverables.
As part of the project, two acts from the EXCITE network will be showcasing: Ivy Flindt (Germany) and Ükku (Finland). You can hear them play as part of the music showcasing programme taking place during the evenings of XpoNorth.
