Hamburg is the city where the Beatles were once started out. And it comes naturally that the city’s festival Reeperbahn Festival is a power plant for young bands waiting to be discovered. One of them are Pip Blom, a young band based in Amsterdam, who have been touring with names such as Garbage or Franz Ferdinand. We sat down to talk with them at the Beatles statue - where else?

Finally, NBHAP returns to the wonderful Flow Festival in Helsinki. And while we're definitely looking forward to amazing headliner performances from the Arctic Monkeys to Lauryn Hill we also can't wait to discover brand new music. Well, and that brings us directly to the local music scene.
