Maydays is the Pop Department's annual exam festival. In May, the graduating pop students present the results of four years of training at various pop venues in Amsterdam. The students produce these evenings themselves: they program a show featuring only original music and they also take care of production and promotion. Maydays offers a great opportunity to see and hear the newest pop acts from The Netherlands!
