In POP22, presented by Matthijs van Nieuwkerk and Ilse DeLange, Dutch artists literally and figuratively get a stage.

The most popular bands and artists of the moment, beginning musicians and undiscovered talents: there is room for everyone in this music program. Pop, rock, soul, hip-hop, dance and the life-song come together on four different stages on which four bands or artists perform. How are they doing now that they can perform again? What is their first or newest single and which record would the artists take with them to a desert island? Ilse and Matthijs talk to them, make connections, and above all provide adventure.

Matthijs and Ilse: “A program showing the shop window of Dutch pop music should be a cultural duty of public broadcasting.

POP22 could be seen on May 19 and 26, 2021 by BNNVARA on NPO 1.
