Of course, the Vierdaagsefeesten in de city of Nijmegen are amazing. But every walker knows: the real party takes place at De Wedren.
Amazing, every time
In 2019, DJ duo Wipneus and Pim worked the audience into a frenzy three days running. Not to mention themselves. Bart van Rooijen (alias ‘Pim’, left in the photo): ‘That our audience, even with all those kilometres behind them, is still able to party like that, that amazes me every time.’ Edwin van ’t Schip (‘Wipneus’): ‘What´s great about performing at De Wedren is that it’s so up close and personal. There are no crush barriers here. From the stage I can literally see tears in people’s eyes. I shake hands with hundreds of people during the event, and recognise at least as many faces.’
They get a lot of appreciation from the participants, and they pay that back double. Edwin: ‘You feel the gratitude. There’s no other show where we play a song like Foxy Foxtrot for example. Here we do though. Then you see the people who recognise that song simply beaming. We don’t really realise how people look forward to our performance.’ You couldn’t say a truer word. We are already looking forward to the next edition!
