Marina & the Diamonds treats Amsterdam to fresh ‘froot’
It is hard to define where Marina & the Diamonds stand in today’s music scene. She is still to have her first proper hit in the Netherlands, but at the same time she easily sells out her gig in de Melkweg.

Sex, drugs and electronic pop with Tove Lo in Amsterdam
About a year ago, not many people in the Netherlands would know who Tove Lo is, but after the huge success of her single ‘Habits (Stay High)’, the Swedish singer gained quite a following. Her first gig in Amsterdam was planned for January, but after doctors discovered a polyp on her vocal chords, she had to rest for a while. Meanwhile, her new show was upgraded from the smaller ‘Oude Zaal’ to the ‘Max’ because of the raising popularity of this pop phenomenon. So what did we get in the Melkweg? Loads of sex, drugs and electronic pop.
