According to Dagblad van het Noorden, Philippe Hes of 4PMEntertainment has confirmed that the multiple day event will kick off on 31 August. Hes says that the organisers expect to have around 30,000 visitors, which is 10,000 more than Stadspark Live, the festival which was announced earlier this week with Sting as its headliner.
Hes would not confirm any details about which bands would be on the line up for the late August event, telling the Dagblad that more information about the acts that will take the stage should be released in February. Sikkom reports that the festival will feature several stages in the park, and Hes emphasised that 4PMEntertainment was well aware that they would have to feature “very big names” to meet their attendance goals.
Rumours are reportedly circulating that one band that could be a big draw at the festival is the Foo Fighters, but Hes would neither confirm nor deny that. “The festival will feature musicians from a number of different genres and there will be several large stages for them to play on. It’s going to be a pop festival unlike anything else the north has ever had.”
The Foo Fighters will be touring in the United Kingdom and Ireland in late August, but the American rock band does not currently have any show scheduled for the 31st. The band are festival favourites in the Netherlands: they have played at Pinkpop, the massive annual music festival on Pentecost weekend, in 2011 and again in 2018
