YOUR REGISTRATION & ENTRY TO THE EVENT

Please make sure you print-out and bring with you the e-ticket.

Please enter De Oosterpoort via the main entrance. Eurosonic Noorderslag delegates can already collect their badge, wristband, conference directory and bag at this point, however this is not necessary to enter the EFA’s. The registration desk is open from 12:00 – 22:00

After entering De Oosterpoort you will be directed accordingly. Your e-ticket will be scanned at this location and you will be issued with a separate RFID wristband for the European Festival Awards.

Premium ticket-holders should aim to register from 17.30 in time for the pre-dinner opening drinks which will commence at 18:15.

Regular ticket holders (without the dinner) can register up until 21.00 in time for the awards show.

GETTING TO GRONINGEN

Although Groningen does have a small airport, the easiest way to get there from most European cities is to fly into Amsterdam International Airport and take the train directly from the airport (the train journey takes around 2.5 hours).

WRISTBAND INFORMATION

The EFA wristband contains an RFID chip, however, unlike the Eurosonic Noorderslag wristband, this one is not connected to your delegates profile. It simply validates access to the awards show.

  • Access to the cocktail hour with drinks in the foyer of the Grote Zaal from 18.15 – 19.15
  • Access to the EFA dinner at 19.30
  • A floor-level table seat at the EFA awards show at 21.15
  • Access to the EFA afterparty at 00.30
