Apply (for artists)


The Waterhole is always looking for new bands and musicians.

Do you think of yourself as a musician or a band that can entertain and animate our customers? If so, we are happy to give you and / or your band the opportunity.

From an artist/band we expect a high level of ability to create an atmosphere with drive and ambition as entertainment is the key.

On most nights our general audience loves covers. On the Thursday, our program mainly consists of styles we all can dance to: funk, soul, pop, disco, dance, and hiphop. On Fridays and Saturdays contemporary rock is our core style, getting our audience in a weekend-party-mode. Please inform us of your style of music, preferably with examples of titles from your playlist.

However, as a Live Music Bar we also want to support original artists. For bands that write their own songs, we created the Monday Indie Nights, on which several acts (between 3 and 5) are presenting themselves. For this night, applications are just as welcome!

For new bands we require to assess your music performance via YouTube video, demos or soundcloud. Live-video’s are best!

For applications or more information please write: info@waterhole.nl

Bands that play will be advertised and listed in our venue site for promotional purposes. We will be very happy to hear from you.

Note: We DO NOT book metal, hardcore, thrash, gothic etc.
