Samuel Vuillermoz (mx3, CH), Hervé Riesen (Deputy director programmes, Radio France)

European Public Service radio stations support emerging bands and artists every year at the Eurosonic festival in Groningen. Hervé Riesen, Radio France, President of the Eurosonic Group of the EBU, presents this great event and explains why it is so important.

Samuel Vuillermoz, founder of the 30.000 user strong Swiss Music Portal mx3.ch, shows how providing each country with its own platform will strengthen the power and image of radio as well as generate substantial revenues for the artists through broadcasting royalties.
