First preliminary round in Splendor: with Camille Blue, Jaro, tiigre, The Polyframes, Gooseking 3000, and Dani Antal

The Amsterdamse Popprijs is the band competition for all styles of Amsterdam bands. Since its inception 24 years ago, the “Popprijs” has become an institution. During the competition, bands from Amsterdam have the opportunity to present themselves to the public, the media, and the music industry. The preliminary rounds take place at smaller venues in Amsterdam, the semi-finals in Paradiso, and the finals in the Melkweg. This competition gives bands the opportunity to perform in renowned Amsterdam venues, where a band just starting out would not normally get to play. For many of its competitors, the Popprijs has also proven to be a springboard to a successful career. Well-known winners include Ben Forte, WIES, TAPE TOY, Jagd, Sarah-Jane, The Great Communicators, and Yori Swart.

The first preliminary round takes place on Thursday, September 23 in Splendor! Camille Blue, Jaro, tiigre, The Polyframes, Gooseking 3000, and Dani Antal will complete here for a place in the semi-finals.
