Dutch music groups Novastar and Bløf along with singer Sabine Star will give concerts on Thurday in a shop window at De Bijenkorf, Amsterdam’s largest and most prestigious department store.
They will be the guests of radio station Q-Music, which will be broadcasting all day from an improvised studio in the shop’s corner display window.
