The travelling pop festival, Popronde ends, I believe, every year in Eindhoven. After touring through no less than 23 cities, 100 lucky pop bands that have been ‘unearthed’ get valuable live gig experience and access to new audiences and network connections. Other bands that have played at previous Poprondes are Go Back To The Zoo, Roosbeef, Voicst, Elle Bandita, Racoon, Lucky Fonz III, Sabrina Starke, Marike Jager, De Staat and The Mad Trist. All good news stories for this year’s batch of popsters – and they’re so young and full of beans! Their energy and creativity is palpable.

High time for good food High time for good food

Dutch cuisine isn’t world-famous. Most of the time, there’s a reason for that. For a more than decent meal, at a very decent price, you should go to Hoogste Tijd (Dutch for High Time). I had one of the week’s specials – poached wild salmon fillet with a lobster cream sauce nested on a leek quiche with a sweet little crock of Julianne potatoes – all cooked to perfection. A torturous combo of flavours? Could be.
