It’s by far the best free outdoor music festival in Eindhoven and beyond. Powered by Built Environment study association CHEOPS and Studium Generale: chill, rock and dance to the likes of the headliners Fokke Simons and Tape Toy.
A few years ago, some music loving students decided to organize a festival and KABOOMMM: a few years later it’s one of the best free music festivals in Eindhoven. We’re talking about Plugged, of course. Young, talented artists, good weather (this will be taken care of by the weather gods), free entrance, and…(here’s where the free part ends and the cheap part starts) beer, resulting in an amazing ambiance and a great festival.
What’s being said about Tape Toy: a foursome of pleasantly disturbed nineties kids whose self-proclaimed bubble grunge sounds like Nirvana, but happier. With catchy guitar riffs and synth melodies, they turn every live show into a party.
Plus, on the SG-stage, we proudly present Fokke Simons:
Four guys -- Jackson Talent, Ritselaar, Trophe, and Bob from the Corner -- know how to grab the new generation of music lovers with a mix of hip hop, pop and house. Quite the hip hop sensation for the new generation.
Although all four come from completely different backgrounds, the guys met in late 2018 in a house on Amsterdam's Fokke Simonszstraat -- and Fokke Simons saw the light of day, ready to conquer the Netherlands. Be sure to check out their videos.
Just a few random Plugged stats
In 2016, the Plugged Festival was ranked number one in the Festival Atlas 2016 in the innovation-index: no repetition of the same artists at the festival.
In the past, Plugged has seen acts like Lookapony, Mozes and the Firstborn, Canshaker Pi, The Cool Quest, Waltzburg, and Caïro Liberation Front. And for the fourth year in a row --well, there was a party pooper called Corona tucked in there, of course -- Studium Generale will host the small stage on which student acts like Tommy Gazer and more will perform.
No reservations needed. Just bring yourself, your friends, and good vibes.
So…let’s get prepped to get plugged.
