Kick off the new year by meeting DIY at ESNS 2024!

DIY is festival media partner to ESNS festival for the seventh year running

DIY is thrilled to confirm that we will be out in force at ESNS 2024, not just as media partner to the festival for the seventh year, but also as a key contributor to this year’s conference. We will be discussing on the changing face of music media during Thursday’s 4.30pm panel, as well as giving education and advice on how to approach DIY’s team during speed meetings which you can book here. Please add the dates to your diary! We will also be available for meetings to update you on our festival, label and music export office marketing and media packages for 2024. If you’d like to meet up please contact 

Not only are DIY helping to highlight this year’s event, but we’ve continued to celebrate 20 years of  ESNS Exchange, the festival’s talent exchange programme which has supported 2,145 European artists hailing from 35 countries, enabling them to perform at an impressive tally of 5,288 shows across 187 partner festivals in 44 countries.

Once again DIY is helping to promote the successes of the ESNS Exchange and its key position in the music discovery and festival ecosystem.
