Eurovision 2019 winner Duncan Laurence has been added to the line-up of the well-known Pinkpop music festival.

Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands is certainly playing a winning game since his victory at Eurovision 2019 in Tel Aviv. The young artist has made a giant leap in his career, the latest feat is being added to the line-up of Pinkpop, the longest running annual pop festival in the world which will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this edition.

Pinkpop takes place in Landgraaf in the southern Dutch province Limburg each year on, or around, Pentecost (“Pinksteren” in Dutch, hence the festival’s abbreviated name, which also playfully means “pink puppet” in Dutch). The world’s biggest pop and rock stars have performed on the Pinkpop stages, the three-day festival attracting some 68,000 visitors a day.

Playing at Pinkpop is a boon for many national and international stars, and Duncan Laurence will this year join the likes of Armin van Buuren, The Cure, Fleetwood Mac, George Ezra, Lenny Kravitz, Major Lazer and Mumford & Sons, besides many more, including fellow former Eurovision participant Anouk (Eurovision 2013).

Anouk featured at Pinkpop before, just as The Common Linnets (Ilse DeLange and Waylon) and Douwe Bob, yet Duncan Laurence will be the first Eurovision winner to grace the Pinkpop stage!

Arcade on the Brightlands Stage

Duncan Laurence will perform on Monday 10 June on the Brightlands Stage, presenting his songs from 18:20 to 19:20 CET, no doubt including his Eurovision 2019 hit Arcade.

The Dutch singer-songwriter is very happy to be included in the prestigious festival’s line-up:

Whaaaa! Imagine that feeling of waking up on your birthday when you were a kid… but then times ten… that is how I…
