Parkpop can be considered as the largest free popevent in The Netherlands and also one of the biggest in Europe. For more than 35 years the festival programs different styles of popular music, with both national and international acts. Besides the concerts, the festival also has a large festival market and extensive catering facilities. Parkpop shows you that a festival is more than just listening to good music with a drink in your hand. It’s also enjoying the atmosphere and spending time with friends and family. Because of its tradition and because it is a free of charge festival in the center of one of the major Dutch cities, Parkpop has a very differentiated audience. Besides the regular festival audience, many groups of friends and young families attend the festival with children and babies, whilst curious elderly couples can be seen as well. Altogether, the atmosphere at the festival is in general very much at ease on a – in general – sunny Sunday.
Parkpop 2017 is going to be bigger than ever! In 2014 a big step was already taken, by organising the festival Night at the Park, one day before Parkpop. This year, the city centre of The Hague will be transformed into one huge Parkpop pre party on the Friday night. Under the name Parkpop Downtown, a Parkpop labelled program will be performed, in collaboration with different music venues.
