Dutch music exports topped € 200m for the first time in 2017, according to new figures from Buma Cultuur, which monitors the industry.

Of the € 201m, over 75% came from dance music, boosted by international draws such as Tiesto, Martin Garrix and Afrojack. But classical music from Andre Rieu and his Johan Strauss Orchestra also books success worldwide, the organisation said.

Of the total, some € 22.5m is earned via rights, € 12m from recordings and € 166m from live performance.

Classics from the past also continue to deliver financial rewards, such as Golden Earring’s Radar Love and Venus by Shocking Blue, Buma Cultuur points out.
