Again another edition of the Bospop festival. This year they have succeeded again to get a great line up. Some of the bands this year are truly legendary. Old and new go together. For instance Stream of Passion, a project of Arjen Lucassen which is great band with a lot of potential, a sight for soar eyes and a true joy for your ears. Beth Hart who sings from deep within her soul. The Joe Jackson band, a famous name from the seventies. Roxy Music whom everybody knows form hits such as ‘Love is the Drug’ and ‘Let’s Stick Together’. For everyone there is something to like and love. Now all we need is a little sunshine and this will be a great festival, like last year.

Bospop history

The Bospop rock festival, which will be held for the 26th time on 7 & 8 and 9 July 2005, 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 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, 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. We would like to refer the real fans to Ad van Mierlo's ( or Ed Hul's websites (, where you can find many photographs of the previous editions of Bospop.
