ticketscript on tour: Noorderslag Conference 2015

Eurosonic Noorderslag is right around the corner and both the Conference and Festival are completely sold out! Along with our mega tour bus, and a jam-packed agenda consisting of panels, workshops and more, ticketscript will be loud and proud throughout, and we expect this year’s Noorderslag to be the greatest yet.

Here’s a glimpse of our agenda for Noorderslag:

We begin our tour of Groningen on 15 and 16 January at 10:30am. You’ll spot our tour bus at The Infoversum, Oosterpoort, Groningen Central Station and Palace. Check out the tour programme for more information and follow #tsontour for updates on the whereabouts of the ticketscript tour bus.

There are a number of unmissable panels, seminars and workshops. As much as we’d love to be at all of them, we’ve had to choose the ones we’ll be attending. Here’s where you can find us on Thursday and Friday:
