Froukje is signed by leading Dutch label Top Notch and seals her breakthrough with her EP 2021 EP ‘Licht en Donker’, with another single going viral on Tiktok.

The aim with sold out events is to keep a fair price for the real fans and also to avoid problems at the entrance of the festivals with false tickets and disappointed fans. Working at Monumental since 2002, the goal still is to always keep improving.
