Few bands last more than a quarter of a century. The number of bands that still make music with the eagerness of a young dog after such a period can be counted on one hand. Van Dik Hout is such a rarity. A Nederpop institute that is proud of its musical past, but has always kept looking ahead.

You can see this experienced but youthfull band, with the support from KAFKA in the Main Hall on October 13th!

2021 was an eventful year for Van Dik Hout. A year in which they received De Gouden Harp but also had to say goodbye to band member and drummer Oscar Kraal. The death of Oscar is the inspiration for the most recent single ‘Op De Waves Dansen Wij’. A song about fate and life. Where people look back with love, new paths are also taken. For example, Van Dik Hout traveled to Berlin to record this new single with producer Niels Zuiderhoek and to write a new musical chapter. Because where Van Dik Hout is proud of the musical past, they mainly keep looking ahead!

Support: KAFKA is an Amsterdam band that makes innovative, alternative (pop) music. The band consists of two opposing musicians. Together, Dafne Holtland and Frank van Kasteren form a musical marriage of contradictions. Cheerful and thoughtful. One moment, bombastically melodic, then layered, quiet, and modest. Exciting in a Kafka-esque way, followed by the harmonic conclusions you were hoping for. With a lazy, raw undertone – rhymthic, digging, and exciting.
