Pop, rock, jazz and hip hop; Maastricht will have it all. On the night of Friday 24 September, Popronde, a travelling Dutch music festival, will drop by and present a selection of the last word in the music industry. Over thirty fresh, talented, but still unknown bands will perform at several locations in the city centre (including the Lumiѐre and Landbouwbelang). Tickets are free, so you can also hop between acts if you prefer. For more information about the bands and locations, see www.popronde.nl.
Always wanted to take a ride in a fire truck? Curious to see helicopters flying at close range? The official Flikkendag Maastricht will give you the opportunity to take part in these and other sensational activities. The event aims to give fans a glimpse behind the scenes of the popular Dutch police series Flikken Maastricht. All episodes are filmed in and around the city of Maastricht. Along with diving demonstrations and information on working with police dogs, the main actors Victor Reinier, Angela Schijf, Oda Spelbos and Sergio Romero IJssel will be around to meet and greet. The day will come to an end at the Vrijthof, with performances by local singers Fabrizio and Beppie Kraft. Flikkendag Maastricht takes place on Saturday 25 September, from 11.00 to 17.00.
