They played the very first Pinkpop back in 1970, and 49 years later they will take to the stage in exactly the same line-up: Golden Earring. Something is guaranteed to happen every time the hell-raisers from The Hague get under the Pinkpop Girl’s skirts. During that first Pinkpop performance George Kooymans got a big electric shock, and in 1977 Barry Hay ended up tripping in a police station. And in 2005 they dragged the festival through its toughest edition. In 2019, Pinkpop and the Golden Earring together represent more than a century of Dutch rock pride – cause for a celebration if ever there was!
