Go full on right from the start of the festival season. Jump in the deep end, hit that turbo button and press down that gas during Easter weekend. Fun, parties and the best music come together during the first festival of the season. With the best décor and the stunning, you’ll feel like you’re in Vegas.


It’s all in the name: Paaspop (“Easterpop”) takes place during the Easter weekend. This year that is 19, 20, and 21 April.


Paaspop takes place at the festival grounds of ‘De Molenheide’ in Schijndel, the Netherlands. Schijndel is about 10 kilometers south of Den Bosch. The festival grounds are at ‘De Heikampen’ in Schijndel, which is in the south of the Netherlands.

Paaspop is the official opening of the Dutch festival season. Paaspop stands out thanks to its huge variety in food and drink, in terms of camping accommodation and most importantly… it stands out because of its program! We try to amaze you, let you dance and overwhelm you with cabaret, a theater program, high level entertainment, absurdities, street artists, stand-up comedy, lifestyle, lots of different types of music in all genres – from hip-hop to rock n roll and from dance to singer-songwriters.

During the last few editions, lots of international artists came to Schijndel, like Bastille, 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 and more.

Thanks to the compact and thus intimate festival terrain, all the podiums and areas are close together. From Paaspop’s biggest podium Apollo (capacity 18,000) to the intimate Dolle Mina – a bar straight from the Amsterdam neighborhood the ‘Jordaan’. Or you can go for Thunderbolt, the bikers café; the beautiful theater with seats or the Restolounge, an atmospheric restaurant with podiums where you will mostly find festive bands. You will also find a Join-Us area on the terrain, where creative minds have created their own piece of Paaspop.

But there is more: Paaspop camping ‘Paradise City’! A charming little city with a real beauty salon, a supermarket, a campfire and of course lots of entertainment like a cinema and a silent disco. There is more than enough to choose from when it comes to accommodation: from basic to the luxurious Paaspop Resort with your own luxurious bathroom, atmospherics lighting, pleasant lounge areas and a private check-in and reception. Or would you prefer the acclaimed ‘friend zone’, where you can find your very own camping spot just for your group of friends, for example with a Porta Potti and electricity just for your group.
