Some pop-ular stories 🤩

@CathyCentral 11/10/2023

Hear about some super popular Amsterdam events coming up, with pop tracks to match.

Listen back on the mixcloud player above to this edition of our Dam Daily show.

🎵 Music included a semi-finalist in the Popprijs 2023 (organised by GRAP), and the Elmer – the winner of 2023’s Zonneprijs (organised by the Indiestad series).

Stories included:

  • the difference between two of the city’s biggest music talent competitions
  • what’s happening on next year’s festival scene – safety focus and no lottery for spots, for now
  • the American Hotel waves goodbye to its brief time as the Hard Rock Hotel
  • which comedian has sold out the Koninklijk Theater Carré later in October, and which comedian is selling very fast already for his April 2024 tour date?
  • the best Halloween party in the city
  • popular events coming up at the Ziggodome
  • the biographer of Elon Musk is in town at the end of November but there’s literally one ticket left (at the time of broadcast).

Local music acts can enter for the Zonneprijs here:
