The History of Bospop Festival
Bospop draws a very diverse audience who visit to enjoy a combination of pop, blues and rock music. With a festival site that’s packed with ways to enjoy yourself including the legendary campsite pub, this festival prides itself on great atmosphere, great music and great times.
The Bospop rock festival, which will be held for the 28th time on 11 & 12 and 13 July 2008, has made a name for itself thanks to its easy-going atmosphere. This festival, which was started as a small-scale festival for mainly regional amateur bands in 1980 on a DIY stage has now grown into a big musical event with bands of international fame which has won itself a permanent listing on the festival calendar. The headliners which have played Bospop include Sting, The Doors, Deep Purple, Zucchero, Simple Minds, ZZ-TOP, INXS, Toto, UB40, Alice Cooper, Steve Lukather, Status Quo, Bryan Adams, Golden Earring, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, K’s Choice, The Gathering, Joe Cocker, John Fogerty, Dreamtheater and many others.
In spite of the growing number of visitors Bospop has always managed to keep its pleasant and intimate atmosphere. That’s why Bospop has for years been considered one of the most enjoyable festivals in the Netherlands.
