The Irish band Inhaler is also moving to 2021. The young pop/rock band has come on the radar of the organization true the ETEP programme and is ready for their breakthrough.

The European Talent Exchange Programme (ETEP) was introduced in 2003 to make the ‘exchange’ of European artists across Europe possible on a greater scale than ever before. An initiative of ESNS, ETEP facilitates the bookings of European acts on festivals outside their home countries and generates extensive media exposure for these artists in cooperation with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), export offices and local media. This way, ETEP aims to give a boost to the international careers of European artists. Pinkpop has supported this initiative since its start and tries every year to give a promising act from Europe a spot on the festivals bill.

Irish band Inhaler, consisting of frontman Elijah Hewson, bassist Robert Keating, guitarist Josh Jenkinson and drummer Ryan McMahon, has no complaints about interest, as we found out during the first sold-out Dutch tour of September 2019. The four boys met in high school and have been working hard to make a name for themselves ever since. All in all, however, Inhaler is an impetuous young pop/rock band who, with cheerful songs like Ice Cream Sundae and It Won’t Always Be Like This, is the perfect fit for Pinkpop’s festival grounds.
