Going Dutch promotions in 2017
Over 2017 a total of 33 performances by Dutch artists were promoted in the UK and Ireland by 17 British and Irish promoters in 17 towns or cities (and using a total of 20 venues). Going Dutch supported and/or promoted gigs and tours of Kapok, ICP, Even Sanne, Kaja Draksler but also other Dutch musicians in various formations.
