Street festival in the center of Emmen.

Emmen Center is all about Throw it at my pet festival. During this street festival you can let your music be heard as professional or amateur musicians, young and old. The emphasis is on unamplified playing, so there is no drum set, but a djembe, cajon or, say, pots and pans and not an electric guitar, but an acoustic guitar. Each musician has his own place.

As the name of the festival suggests, it is allowed to earn extra pocket money by putting your hat in front of you. If you come to the audience, you have to decide who you want to listen to and donate money. A professional jury evaluates the nominees and pays special attention to the quality of each participant or group, where the atmosphere, authenticity, and whether the work is street music worthy and vocal.
