On 25 August, the idyllic Amsterdam Bos will form the backdrop of the first edition of the Once in a Blue Moon Festival. With a varied line-up and three stages, the festival presents a perfect combination of well-known names, such as The Mavericks, as well as promising newcomers like, for example, Sam Outlaw, Hiss Golden Messenger and DeWolff. With fresh interpretations of old musicgenres such as classic country, honky tonk and alt-country, the Americana music scene is once again a growing trend, especially amongst young people. One of the headliners of the festival, Dutch artist Tim Knol, is said to be very happy with this development and the creation of the festival.
