In 2021, Pip Blom released their second full-length album titled Welcome Break. The album received positive reviews.




May 17 // 9:30pm


Marathon is not just a band, it’s a top-level sport. The Amsterdam-based trio is bursting with energy, and it explodes out of them on stage, captivating audiences everywhere they go. Marathon’s music is a passionate response to the crisis-ridden twenty-first century, channelling the energy of punk and the dissonance of shoegaze and post-punk to give voice to urban anxiety. Marathon is a band that demands attention, and their growing fan base is a testament to their undeniable talent.


FRÄULEIN (Alternative Rock)


May 17 // 12:30am

Fräulein is a Northern Irish / Dutch duo currently based out of SW London. Cathartic 90’s flavoured alt rock influenced by the likes of The Breeders, PJ Harvey and Big Thief, whilst incorporating cavernous grooves and sharply observational lyrics. With raucous shows supporting The Mysterines, Big Joanie, Nova Twins, Sprints and JOHN under their belts, the band have a debut mini album due for release in Spring 2024.


LOUPE (Indie Rock)


May 17 // 12:30pm



May 18 // 9:15pm


Amsterdam-Antwerp indie rock formation Loupe has the unique gift of sounding both impulsive and hypnotic: a fluid sound in which styles such as synth pop, alternative folk and indie rock are expressed through their unique chemistry. The smooth, aerodynamic grooves of Annemarie, the melodic basslines of Lana and the dynamic, virtuoso playing of Abel form a kind of secret language. The recent addition of singer Nina Ouattara gives Loupe a unique voice to push the band towards a new creative path; the new single Tested Waters sounds both effortlessly groovy and intricate at the same time, and combines dark, moody lyrics with memorable sing-along hooks.


SARAH JULIA (Alternative Indie)


May 17 // 1:30pm



May 17 // 9:15pm


Creatively intertwined since childhood, Rotterdam-raised, Amsterdam-based sister duo Sarah Julia began exploring their artistic spirits at a young age through theatre and film. However, it is in music where the sisters have come together to find their true home.

Inspired by a variety of artists (including Phoebe Bridgers, Big Thief and Joni Mitchell), Sarah Julia create music that considers both folk and pop influences with the use of their songwriting and sonics. Woven through the sisters’ two vocals in considered harmony.

“After years spent telling other people’s stories, it’s time to share our own…

The Dutch/Surinamese songstress finds herself on the cusp of releasing her debut album ‘somebody’s daughter’ on May 3rd, 2024. The album’s themes follow néomí’s journey through adolescence, young adulthood and newly found womanhood. ‘somebody’s daughter’ presents 11 chapters in néomí’s coming of age story which follows a young woman’s journey through trust, love, and ultimately self-healing through reflection.
