Because of the appearance of the building, the facilities, the location and the good cooperation last season, we didn’t have to look any further this year. SugarCity was the perfect location for our program TALPA
For the eighth season of The voice of Holland, producer Talpa has once again chosen the industrial location SugarCity!
During six recording days the episodes of The Battles and The Knockouts were filmed. The candidates compete in The Battles of The voice of Holland for a place in the live shows. Because of the many talents, an extra round was also needed this year: The Knockouts. During this part a completely new setting was created this year. In the junior version of the program The voice Kids the kids get the chance to prove themselves in the ring.
The recordings took place in September and October of 2016. In more than three weeks, the entire location was fully furnished into a TV studio and delivered empty again. To complete the decor, an extra boiler was built on the ground floor from which camera images were also taken. In between, the location was converted several times, in order to be able to film the different elements during the recording days. Per shooting day about 300 people were welcomed by the public, who enthusiastically encouraged the candidates.
In preparation for the return of The voice of Holland, several wishes were realised, including the expansion of the internet possibilities and the isolation of the production office. The platform of the stairs was also enlarged. Where the stairs meet, there was room for a new setting at ‘The Knockouts’.
The industrial look of SugarCity fits perfectly with the decor of The Battles. The boxing ring is given an extra dimension by the atrium and the use of the first floor. The location reinforces the setting of the rounds of the The voice of Holland.
The recordings from SugarCity were broadcast between 2 December 2016 and 6 January 2017 on RTL4.
The episodes of The voice Kids can be seen from 31 March at 20:30 on RTL4.
