He won the MIA for ‘Flemish Popular’, played along with close friend Miguel Wiels four sold-out shows in Flanders, did all the major summer festivals, and as icing on the cake, he stood up twice in a sold out Sportpaleis in the character of his 30th birthday. 2018 was without doubt the year of Niels Destadsbader. Can it go even further? There were already more than 20,000 tickets were sold for his new shows in the Sportpaleis in antwerp on 6 and 7 december, and with a whopping 7 (!) MIA-nominations, where he also will occur, he may be the big winner of the evening.
