Well, our 12 day celebration of our best moments of 2012 comes to an end – and we’re going out on a high. Earlier this year we assembled a line-up of the most exciting bands in Amsterdam and set them loose on stage at the legendary Desmet Studios. The result was ‘Global Scene Live': the selection of incredible performances you can see below, from the likes of Koffie, The Secret Love Parade, Avant La Lettre, The Fudge, Hit Me TV and Horses On Fire. Perfect stuff to chill out with on the Sunday before Christmas (before or after you pack in all that last-minute shopping …)
