Fabchannel founder and CEO Justin Kniest had been working with Dutch venues Paradiso and Melkweg for years as a producer before collaborating with the two concert halls in 2000 to create an abundant archive of the diverse, globetrotting bands that play for their audiences in the Netherlands.

Since then, Fabchannel has picked up numerous awards from the local organizations like Prix Europa and Spin to international validations like the 2006 Webby Award for Best Music Website, each complimenting the site’s excellent design and excellent content.

As the tagline goes, “We record, you choose.” And wow, there is a lot to choose. Fabchannel’s archive includes hundreds of well-known and not so well-known bands performing at their best. The video quality is high, the audio quality is even better.  There are American rock classics, British pop bands, reggaeton, and contemporary Arabic acts. For an English-speaking audience, some of the recognizable names include John Cale, Lily Allen, Audio Bullys, Bright Eyes, Andrew Bird, Josh Ritter, and British Sea Power, among many others.
