Popround Tilburg 2021

The largest travelling festival in the Netherlands moves its traditional autumn tour to early 2021 because of corona measures. Popronde Tilburg will take place on March 11, 2021. The regular edition of Popronde 2021 will continue unchanged in the autumn.

With the one and a half metre distance measures it is not possible to organize a Popronde,' says Mischa van den Ouweland, artistic director of the festival. 'In a pop stage or theatre it is still possible to watch a band with thirty, forty or even a hundred people from a distance, but Popronde often takes place in pubs, clothes shops or hairdressing salons, locations that can welcome far fewer people if a meter and a half distance has to be kept.

With the one and a half metre distance measures it is not possible to organize a Popronde,' says Mischa van den Ouweland, artistic director of the festival. 'In a pop stage or theatre it is still possible to watch a band with thirty, forty or even a hundred people from a distance, but Popronde often takes place in pubs, clothes shops or hairdressing salons, locations that can welcome far fewer people if a meter and a half distance has to be kept. For both artist and location this is not a desirable situation'.

The organisation expects that the one and a half metre measure will still be in force in the autumn, and has therefore decided to relocate the festival as a whole. Van den Ouweland 'the deadline for programming a Popronde is six weeks before the start of the festival in a city. Although Popronde wasn't due to start until September, the first deadlines were soon approaching. Following last Wednesday's press conference, which did not make it clear that the measures had been relaxed, we decided to move the festival to early 2021'.

Popronde Tilburg on March 11, 2021.

So Popronde Tilburg will take place on Thursday March 11, 2021 instead of Thursday October 29. Nothing changes to the concept, the program of Popronde Tilburg will be announced 5 weeks before the start, and it is clear that the most talented acts of the moment are coming to town, following in the footsteps of Kensington/My Baby/Mister and Mississippi/John Coffey. Thijs Boontjes/EUT/De Staat/Lucas Hamming/Rondé/Jeangu Macrooy who were on Popronde Tilburg in the past, before they made breakthroughs with the general public.

Moving Popronde 2020 to early 2021 has no consequences for the regular edition, which will take place in the autumn of 2021 and will start on Saturday September 11th in home town Nijmegen.
