The talent emerging from the Nordics seems to never end; Sigrid, Alan Walker, Boy Pablo, Volbeat, MØ, Alma, Zara Larsson, Of Monsters and Men, and the list goes on, have all built up a massive following, performing for thousands of fans around the world.
A vital part of the rise of these artists are the teams behind them, and especially the young forces who bring new perspectives, ideas and business models to an ever-changing industry. Therefore, for the second time, 20 young forces driving the Nordic industry forward are given the spotlight.
