'Castle Picking Party' ~~ New 2016 Location

The new "Picking Party" location in Borger, NL

After a successful 5-year run at Het Kasteel in Groningen, Netherlands co-producer / host of the "Castle Picking PartyHans Kelderhuis announced a new location for the annual all-day jam and concert event. Prior to the last set in the castle's concert hall on September 27th it was revealed that the free public Picking Party will be held in Borger, NL (province Drenthe) beginning in 2016. 

"Cultuurpodium VANSLAG" will be the new home for the annual gathering. VANSLAG is perhaps the most beautiful and accomodating indoor music showcase in all of Holland. The historic 'old village church' in Borger, having been carefully renovated in recent history, now houses one of the most favorable and inviting music venues in the entire country.
