Arsenal Festival officially enters the ESNS Exchange program


Arsenal Festival, one of the most renowned music events in the region, joyfully announces its inclusion in the prestigious ESNS Exchange program.

ESNS Exchange, a program that has been supporting and promoting young talents across Europe for decades, proudly adds Arsenal Festival to its list of partners. This program has been a crucial step for many artists who are now big stars, including Dua Lipa, Editors, Hozier, and many others.

Collaborating with 130 leading music festivals from Europe and around the world, 27 European public radio stations united in the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), as well as the support of international music journalism, the ESNS Exchange program enables young European artists to cross borders and build international careers. This year, Arsenal Festival joins this prestigious list, providing a new platform for promoting talented performers.

The ESNS Exchange program, supported by the European Commission through the Creative Europe program, represents an invaluable opportunity for young talents. With 100 performances at over 200 venues at European festivals, the program provides an exceptional chance for performers to showcase their talent.

Zoran Vulovic, the director of Arsenal Festival, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration: “It is a great honor to be part of the largest European and global project for the promotion of new young performers. ESNS Exchange has discovered many great world performers, from Franz Ferdinand to Dua Lipa, and this year, Arsenal Fest will host two performers from the ESNS Exchange program. Arsenal Fest is becoming increasingly recognizable and visible throughout Europe, and our goal is the decentralization of art and the promotion of new artists and trends.”

At Arsenal 2024, performances include Bijelo Dugme, Zdravko Colic with a symphony orchestra, Keanu Reeves with his band Dogstar, Nouvelle Vague, Asian Dub Foundation, Sivert Hoyem, Circa Waves, Nik West, Lil Pump, Partibrejkers, Goblini, Keni nije mrtav, Jarboli, and many more.
