As reported by the Omrop Fryslân, Sneek’s ‘pop-podium’ is allowing bands to grace its stage once again. Thursday evening was the first performance; with nine local bands to play over the coming weeks. “We can finally get out again”, says John Schut, manager of Het Bolwerk.
The Het Bolwerk team have been working on an exciting summer. “We were completely knocked over by the new regulations in March, but we have used the time well. We have been painting, and changing a few things inside; preparing for the coming period. Naturally, it was never our intention to just sit still”, says Schult.
Shult goes on to say that Het Bolwerk hasn’t suffered too badly from the Coronavirus shutdown. “We weren’t happy about it, but you can’t just sit down: we have to go for it”.
The team has been working on a summer plan for Het Bolwerk; “we’re on the entire summer, including August, with weekly performances”, says Schut. He also said that he wants to get more local bands playing at the music club.
But for now, the first performances will be from nine young bands. “Parents, friends, and partners will come to check it out. They can learn from their experiences here too, that’s always lovely”, says Schut.
As reported by the Sneeker Nieuwsblad, on Saturday July 11 two local rock bands will play at Het Bolwerk: The Crooked and I Am Captain. Last year The Crooked played Eurosonic in Groningen, the Bevrijdingsfestival in Leeuwarden, the Westerpop festival, and at the Dicky Woodstock festival.
