Welcome to The Present Is Present, a week long festival highlighting the rich and diverse universe of creative music in Amsterdam. The scene is bursting with new artists, groups, venues and series popping up all over town, crossing generations, genres and boundaries and injecting new life into the city. The Present Is Present celebrates this vibrant scene. It also marks the launch of a new website, Present Sounds Amsterdam. An initiative of Doek, the site is the guide to adventurous music events in Amsterdam, and, like The Present Is Present, is a joint production of Amsterdam’s creative music programmers.
