Who’s who: Dutch Record Labels

Where would we be without our golden labels of course. The Netherlands has historically been home to a couple of huge labels (Polydor, Roadrunner, Spinnin’, Armada) but we’ve always had small, humble and authentically indie labels at the same time. Here’s a who’s who of all relevant Dutch labels, including the majors and major-owned companies.

Did I miss anyone? Let me know in the comments or drop me an email at info@bohemianmgmt.com. So beware, this is a dynamic list and will probably get updated and extended as time goes on. Last update on 20/02/2021.
