During the autumn holidays, from 18 to 27 October, the pop talent of The Hague is the center of attention in the city. Everything is covered: pop, rock, indie, singer-songwriter, urban / hip hop, electronics and more. The Hague Pop Awards are also presented and Popradar Music Support offers musicians, producers, acts, managers and other music freaks with ambitious different seminars, workshops, master classes or network meetings.
During this 10-day you can immerse yourself in music throughout the city. For example, music lovers will enjoy themselves during the 3VOOR12 / DenHaag club tour in the Pop district on and around the Grote Markt with acts that you must see before it's too late.

In Het Paard there is hitchhiking with professionals from the pop sector, or you can participate in the boot camp of Slagwerk The Hague.

The winner of the Popradar Music Support Award goes home with € 1000 in support through Popradar Music Support, the Hague organization where talented local musical acts and musicians can turn to for advice and support.
