Get inspired! Art Rocks
What is the Art Rocks music competition?
Art Rocks is the largest music competition in the Netherlands that fuses music and the visual arts. Art Rocks challenges musicians to write a song inspired by one of more than 90 artworks in the collections of the following 15 leading Dutch museums spread over the country: Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam), Drents Museum (Assen), Kröller-Müller Museum (Otterlo), Fries Museum (Leeuwarden), Wereldmuseum (Rotterdam), Museum De Lakenhal (Leiden), Coda (Apeldoorn), Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht), Museum Prinsenhof (Delft), KAF (Almere), Zeeuws Museum (Middelburg), Amsterdam Museum (Amsterdam), Panorama Mesdag (Den Haag), Noordbrabants Museum (Den Bosch) and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam).
The latest competition took place in August 2020 and finished in March 2021 with a grande finale in Paradiso (Amsterdam). Due to the Covid pandemic we changed our plans and turned the competition into a TV-series that was broadcasted nationally. Watch every episode including the finale here:
