In recent years, Norwegian artists and the Norwegian industry have been well represented at Eurosonic. Several artists from Norway have won awards at the event, including Donkeyboy, Envy (Nico & Vinz), Todd Terje, Aurora, Alan Walker, Sigrid, Smerz and Girl in Red.

Eurosonic has an impressive track record of new acts that they have helped break through on the international live music scene. The showcase event has kick-started the international career of artists such as Shame, Her, Alma, Roosevelt, Aurora, Dua Lipa and many more. This has been done both by offering them a stage during Eurosonic, but also by supporting them after the event through their European Talent Exchange Program (ETEP).
