Let's rewind: what is Huis van Oranje? 🤷🏾
Unsure about what Huis van Oranje is? Let's look back to something we wrote in an earlier blog...
"Imagine, you're in the Johan Cruijff ArenA with 55.000 other fans of Oranje. The World Championship is broadcast live on the biggest screens you've ever seen and together with all the fans you cheer for Oranje at each goal. Before the match starts you'll get in the right mood with a pre-show from amazing singers, we'll look ahead to the match together and you'll get to enjoy a spectaculair halftime show.
All of that is Huis van Oranje! Will you be there on November 25 and 29 to cheer the Dutch national team to victory together with all the other fans?"
Hopefully this has given you an idea! For a visual impression, you can watch the video from OnsOranje below.
The hosts of the evening 🎤
A good start is half the job done, so at Huis van Oranje all guests will be welcomed by three amazing hosts: Jack van Gelder, Soufiane Touzani and Emma Heesters. With the football knowledge of Jack, the vibes of Soufanie and musicality of Emma, the Johan Cruijff ArenA will get in the Oranje mood and will everyone be ready to cheer on the Dutch national team!
The musical miracles 🧑🏻🎤
Days like these are incomplete without music, so we took care of that at Huis van Oranje. Before the match starts and during the rest, a selection of the best Dutch artists will show what they've got.
Besides her role as a host, singer Emma Heesters will also perform! Louis van Gaal has faith that she'll be able to grab the microphone and sing like a nightingale in front of the thousands of visitors in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
He might be the most wellknown rapper in the Netherlands, Ronnie Flex, which means he can't miss in the selection of Huis van Oranje. It took a while for Ronnie to accept the offer of performing, it took Virgil van Dijk's personal invitation to convince him!
Typhoon is also there at Huis van Oranje. He got announced as addition to the line-up of Huis van Oranje in September at 'Ons in Huis' by DJ La Fuente. Which number do you hope he'll perform?
The last year Flemming has become insanely popular in the Netherlands: from musical kid to Dutch pop singer and now on his way to the Johan Cruijff ArenA during Huis van Oranje! Matthijs de Ligt managed to get him on the line-up, and with a song like Amsterdam it's very deserved!
Mart Hoogkamer has taken care of a 'football anthem' that everyone can sing along to during the matches. He went looking for the new Viva Hollandia during a special broadcast of the SBS6 program I Want Your Song, with success! The song Mijn Oranje Hart will be performed by Mart Hoogkamer during Huis van Oranje. We're already practicing the lyrics!
Rapper Koen Jansen, better known as Diggi Dex, is another addition to the line-up. He was a part of The Streamers and gave earlier this year a preview of what he can do during a match of Oranje in the ArenA. A perfect addition!
Everyone knows who Willeke Alberti is and she can definitely not miss in the Johan Cruijff ArenA! Someone who has been an ambassador for the Dutch national song of life belongs at the matches of the Dutch team during the World Championship. We're proud to have her!
Xander de Buisonjé
Singer Xander de Buisonjé has performed in the Johan Cruijff ArenA multiple times before and returns for Huis van Oranje! It promises to become a great evening with him on the line-up.
The last announced artist for Huis van Oranje was none other than Rolf Sanchez. The singer, who had his breakthrough in 2019 with a song with Emma Heesters, came on the line-up because of a bet, and he's excited!
DJ La Fuente
We've spoiled it a little bit but DJ La Fuente will take care of the halftime show on Friday November 25 during the Netherlands - Ecuador! Louis van Gaal announced early on that DJ La Fuente would take care of a show during Huis van Oranje.
DJ-duo Lucas & Steve
Besides a performance on the 25th, the DJ-duo Lucas & Steve will takeover the stage during the rest of the Netherlands - Qatar on Tueday November 29! The duo has released songs with big artists like Tiësto and Armin van Buuren. The duo is also creating a special anthem for the World Championship to get everyone excited! Stay tuned for its release!
