Songwriter Challenge

Pop song for Haarlem

As opposed to London, Paris, Rome and New York the city of Haarlem does not have its own pop song. As of yet! Therefore we invite all song writers to come up with a special pop song that truly reflects the spirit of our city.

It should meet the following requirements: the song should be uptempo, we don’t accept covers and it should be written in either English or Dutch. An expert jury will select the three best songs and the songwriters of those songs will be invited for the final. The winning song will be performed by DGBVN.
