Guest Post by Jens Lendering, producer of Popronde Almere!
This Saturday (September 30th), the city centre will transform into a music festival landscape as the Popronde will land there for the eight time. The newest and hottest upcoming Dutch (and international) acts will present themselves for free (gratis!). Popronde Almere hosts 38 shows at 15 different locations with stages within shops, restaurants, bars, cafés and even on the street. If you are an expat living in Almere, this is the perfect opportunity to get to know great locations within Almere as well as new bands that may even break through and become big artists. After reading this guide, you will know everything you need to get started! Continue reading Internationals in Almere are welcome at the FREE music festival this weekend – Popronde Almere 2017!
Don’t forget registration closes at 5pm, October 22nd!
Don’t forget – Quiz Night is on October 21st at Eetcafe Mokum, Almere Buiten!
Quiz Night is back – and due to renovations at the Apollo, we’ll be visiting
Eetcafe Mokum in Almere Buiten!
As you may know by now, our traditional home of First Friday Night Drinks, the Apollo Hotel is closed for renovations until December (and we can’t WAIT to see what their new look is going to be!)
We’re so lucky in Almere to have other great venues willing to come on board and take us – so we’re happy to announce our temporary home is none other than the fantastic CafeOp2 on the Stadhuisplein! (Members will still get their first drinks on us).
So why not pop on down to the Stadhuisplein on October 7th at 8pm, check out our temporary digs and enjoy a drink with some amazing people!
This month’s winners – Drawing a Blanc!
Congratulations to the “Guess! No Gez!” team from our Quiz night on the 19th of August!
(Thanks also to everyone who put up with my quiz reading and willingly accepting my candy bribes – but next month the awesome Carly is BACK! See you on the 16th of September!)
