Roots in Zuidoost
Thursday June 30 2022 in ,
Since the very beginning of the festival, Amsterdam Roots has often worked together with artists and communities from Zuidoost. The move of our headquarters to Southeast therefore felt like a logical step to a place of vibrant creativity with many young makers and sparkling initiatives.
So on Thursday 30 June Amsterdam Roots presents an anniversary music programme at five special locations in the Amsterdamse Poort, the heart of Amsterdam Zuidoost: at Local Wave, New Metropolis, Oscam, Foundation Hip Hop Academy and an outdoor stage on the square of Hoekenrode next to metro stop Bijlmer Arena.
The profile of each location inspires a varied programming: from singer-songwriters to hip hop acts and multi-headed bands. Besides a lot of live music, each location will have an in-depth fringe programme with q&a's and talk shows about transformations in the music world after two years of pandemics.
