20 jaar Pop
The Conservatorium van Amsterdam's Pop program celebrates its 20th anniversary with a big party in the Melkweg building. A trip down memory lane with bands that have studied at the Pop academy for the past 20 years. The first names are known! So you see: Nusantara Beat, ZEP, Sue The Night, Josephine Odhil, 'Voldemort'and Parker Fans!
The six-piece band Nusantara Beat was founded in Amsterdam by a group of musicians who feel connected to their Indonesian roots and culture. The band creates tropical and mystical sounds, inspired by traditional Indonesian songs from the 20th century and at the same time brings this music into the future and was one of the highlights at Lowlands '23.
ZEP is one of the most innovative drummers of our time with millions of views on TikTok and Instagram and a solo show with which he plays throughout Europe. Raised as a rock and funk drummer in bands, he performs in his solo career as a one-man band, in which he also plays keyboards, bass and guitar. Stage beast ZEP bounces across the stage like an energetic fireball and treats the audience to big and fat, terribly tight off the grid beats, live sampling and virtuoso gospel chops.
Sue The Night
Sue the Night broke through with the album 'Mosaic' and brought her to Best Kept Secret, Paaspop and Zwarte Cross. They then became the House Band at De Wereld Draait Door, scored mega hits on 3FM and the latest single 'Oceans (You Might Go)' receives a lot of airplay. "This single is about having an adventure, about having the courage to dive into the deep, into the unknown."
Surreal dreampop for daydreamers and adventurers. Josephine played with The Mysterons at Lowlands and Transmusicales. As Josephine Odhil she makes mysterious songs that take you to a world far away. Listen to her debut album 'Volatile'.
