H3C Showcase (Aight foundation)
The vanguard of the hip-hop scene in The Hague with Boom Down, Glodi, Jori, Skofniks, Hermes Barzelini, D. Chesron and J Benito and DJ Rashan.

Dragon fruit (GUAP)
“Born out of a love for sample hip-hop and neo-soul”. That is the foundation of the alternative R&B band Dragonfruit. With influences from Flying Lotus and J Dilla to Mahalia and Sabrina Claudio, the sound of Dragonfruit is characterized by a mix of soundscapes, samples and electronics that ,together with the vocals of Danique van der Vlugt, create a relaxed, but very danceable atmosphere.

Queen’s Pleasure (PAARD)
Queen’s Pleasure is a brutal, semi-psychedelic, four piece garage rock band from Amsterdam. Driven by a murderous and poetic longing for love, Queen’s Pleasure sounds like a mix between the Dandy Warhols and Blur, the power of The Ramones and the melancholy of The Smiths. A “Wall of Sound” that includes energy for ten people that you can expect from a band in their late teens.

The Stangs (Popradar)
The band is a name that is chiselled in the Hague scene, with their dune beat this act has been labeled the next big thing several times. With the release of the new single Tuschinski, the band seems one step closer to world fame. Recently there has been some shifting in the composition of this band and that has resulted in a completely new sound.

Paracetamøl (Pop District)
Paracetamøl is a four-piece garage post-punk band from Arnhem. In 2018 this formation originated from the love for bands like METZ, Oh Sees, Ty Segall and Ex Cult: raw, exciting, sincere and energetic. On stage the foursome is an extremely intense experience: dark, hard, vicious and intense. The broad musical experience of the band members results in a varied sound, without letting go of garage punk.

Marutyri (ProJazz)
Funk, fusion and jazz. Marutyri is passionate about the beauty and complexity of fusion music. The Rotterdam 8-piece band mixes the three styles. Their live performances are known for the enormous dynamics, story-telling solos, a lot of improvisation and a large dose of funk and groove.

G.O.D (Musicon)
Speedrock from our own city, with influences such as Zeke, Motörhead and Peter Pan Speedrock. A power trio with an emphasis on POWER.
