Welcome to Paaspop!
“The three-day Paaspop in Schijndel is the most beautifully decorated festival in the Netherlands”
Paaspop - the official opener of the Dutch festival season - distinguishes itself by a huge variation in food & drinks, in terms of camping accommodation and especially in terms of the program. The organization strives to amaze, move and overwhelm the visitors with a dazzling program of theatre, cabaret, high class entertainment, absurdities, street artists, stand-up comedy, lifestyle, variety and especially a lot of music in all genres - from hip-hop to “heavy” and from dance to singer-songwriters.
The past editions, an impressive parade of (inter)national celebrated acts came to Schijndel including The Prodigy, Underworld, Kaiser Chiefs, UB40, The Kooks, dEUS, Crystal Fighters, The Bloody Beetroots, 2ManyDJs, Golden Earring, Balthazar, Triggerfinger, Jett Rebel, Guus Meeuwis, Dotan, Anouk, Kensington, Skunk Anansie, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig, Racoon, Within Temptation, Kovacs, De Staat, Chef’Special, Seasick Steve, Hans Teeuwen and Doe Maar.
Because of the compact and therefore intimate festival terrain, all stages and areas are close to each other. From Paaspops indoor stadium Apollo (capacity 18,000) to the intimate Dolle Mina - a café straight from the Amsterdam Jordaan. Or go to the wild bikers cafe Thunderbolt; dance temple Stardust; the beautiful Theatre with seats or the Restolounge, an atmospheric restaurant with stages where mainly festive bands perform. And then there is also the Thunder Alley, an indoor shop-lifestyle area with the Vinyl Mania (Paaspops record store for intimate concerts) and Schorem Barbier (the country’s coolest barber for good company and a free haircut). A bit further on is the Join US!-area, the area where creative minds have realized their “own piece of Paaspop”.
But there is more; Paaspop camping ‘Paradise City’! A charming town with a real beauty salon, supermarket, campfire and plenty of entertainment such as a cinema and a silent disco. In terms of accommodation, there’s enough choice: from basic to the luxurious Paaspop Resort with its own luxury bathroom, atmospheric lighting, pleasant lounge areas and private check-in/reception. Or the widely applauded ‘friends area’, where groups of friends can set up their own camping spot with, for example, their own Dixi toilet and electricity.
