The Waterpop festival organized its 22th edition last Friday and Saturday in the Hofpark in Wateringen. In terms of weather, in addition to many dry moments, unfortunately also some showers. But that certainly didn’t spoil the fun.

Waterpop celebrated on Friday 12 July and Saturday 12 July a weekend full of music, street theatre, entertainment and fun children’s activities. The oldest free festival in the Netherlands has now become an annual tradition that attracts festival-goers of all ages.

Wateringen in the center

At Waterpop the atmosphere is always cozy and casual. Young and old enjoy fun bands and other performances here and put the small Westland town of Wateringen in the center of attention every year.

Emerging talent

Emerging talent shows itself to the wider public here and better-known names prove why they belong on stage.

So much fun

Waterpop is a festival that thrives on 428 volunteers who work hard every year to get everything done perfectly again.

        It was a sunny and pleasant afternoon when the Queen came by. A number of music and games activities took place and Queen Máxima spoke to volunteers and residents of the district.

        On arrival, Máxima was serenaded by a group of children from Loosduin, just in front of the old windmill ‘De Korenaer’. A little later, the Queen also had a photo taken with a group of young athletes and many children’s hands were shaken and photos taken at the farewell.

  • Princess Beatrix was once again cozy on Saturday afternoon in The Hague where she opened the second edition of the sculpture exhibition “Voorhout Monumental”.

    The exhibition “Voorhout Monumental” can be visited from 3 June to 12 August at the Lange Voorhout in The Hague.

    Fans of the Royal Family and other interested parties had come in large numbers to the Voorhout to catch a glimpse of Princess Beatrix and especially to capture this special moment in the photo.

    Princess Beatrix opened the open-air exhibition at the Lange Voorhout organized by Pulchri Studio, of which the princess is patroness.

    The Princess has recently stumbled and has been walking with a cane for a few days now. Still, she seemed to have little trouble walking and really enjoyed all the beautiful works of art.
