Edisons: band without a singer and newcomer great achievers | show

Where a band without a singer took off with the play award, a new group scooped up the most awards Monday night at Edisons Pop’s annual gala. .

The remaining band members are busy with a fresh start, but Kensington received the play award Monday night at the Edisons in Leusden. With singer Eloi Youssef, the rock band reached great heights in fourteen years, with (many) sold-out concerts at the Ziggo Dome and the Johan Cruijff Arena. Now that Youssef (35) wants something musically different, the band will sound different anyway.

The six-member professional jury calls Kensington’s career “impressive”. ‘In all these years, the band has built a strong and striking body of work’, according to the jury’s report. The band succeeds singer Guus Meeuwis, who received this award last year.


Eye-catching, though not unexpected, is the shower of awards for Goldband. The trio from The Hague, complemented by producer Wieger Hoogendorp, not only won the Edison for Best Newcomer, but also two awards in the song category and in the video clip category, together with the singer Maan. Both awards went to the song. Secretly. Goldband, who had great success last year with Emergency, also won the Popprijs in January. With three Edisons, in the eyes of the jury, ‘the Dutch festival band of the moment’ won the most awards.
