1975 Eurovision Song Contest winners Teach-In will be reuniting , 31 years after they split up, for Het grootste muziekfeest van Nederland after an invitation by TROS.

Teach-In (Gettie Kaspers, Chris de Wolde, Ard Weenink, Koos Versteeg, John Gaasbeek and Ruud Nijhuis) won the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest with Ding-a-Dong only to split up a year later. Partner site Belgovision reports :"It was a nice surprise when TROS called me and asked if the original band would come and perform at Het Grootste Muziekfeest Van Nederland," says Ruud Nijhuis, one of the original members. "I immediately called everyone. The reactions were very positive and everyone liked the idea to do something together again. In spite of our busy jobs and obligations, we will all be there".

Het grootste muziekfeest van Nederland will take place on August 31 in three different locations in the Netherlands (Market Square of Haarlem, Het Oldehoofster Kerkhof in Leeuwarden and Het Vrijthof in Maastricht) with surprise guest stars. The show wll be aired on Nederland 1 by TROS.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
