According to singer Davina Michelle, the Dutch Grand Prix was ‘just’ a festival. That’s what she said on the program last night HLF8 by Johnny de Mol. Davina Michele was in Zandvoort singing the national anthem on Sunday. It was twice, not once but twice, after Max Verstappen won. The singer said that this show was proof festivals can be good.
Johnny de Mol, a Johnny de Mol talk show host, stated that “This was a Festival and that’s why everything went under fire.” “What I did was a tribute. I would not have agreed to perform a free show in order to keep the crowd warm.
Michelle says that the outgoing cabinet cannot afford to cancel festivals. Half of the country was in chaos during Formula 1’s run-up. The racing event became more like a music festival. Camping was allowed near the circuit. Entertainment sector was especially furious because they are still prohibited from doing anything. Prince Bernhard, coowner, of the circuit, requested that Chef’Special perform at no cost during the event. Davina Michelle then made it clear that she would only perform if other artists were paid. The Dutch Grand Prix organization changed. Bernhard thought Formula 1 was epic.
The Formula 1 event was akin to a festival. It was bustling with people. There were performances and guests staying at the campsite. Hugo de Jonge, the corona minister at the time, would have preferred to see it differently. Now he saw that “practice does not follow the rules”. According to the cabinet the Dutch Grand Prix was allowed on its current course because it was staged. Visitors have been given seats. This was not always true. Prince Bernhard was co-owner of Zandvoort’s circuit. He stated that the organization had done everything right.
“We have now shown that it is simply possible,” emphasized Davina Michelle in HLF8. “There is no difference between this event and the festivals. So let’s go!”
