In Stockholm, he opened two weeks long a café where he performed, among other things in the company of The Common Linnets. In Rotterdam, he opened during MTV Music Week the Fool Bar where he occasionally composed and how to draw itself.

But after the festival summer would be one of his dreams come true. Under the motto ‘ I grew up in a bar, why would I not open ‘ itself, he started in October its own café in the Amsterdam pipe: The Fool Bar, an American fiftiesbar. Monthly he holds there The Fool Bar Sessions and some of the artists perform.

Cafés and music, all well and good. But the 24-year-old Dutchman also put himself in front, with such a name how could it be otherwise, the Dutch bobcampagne. In February he jumped with his guitar in the car and he went to thank some drivers with a song.

He occasionally some less fortunate in traffic. In July he was hit by an old-timer when he drove his scooter. His arm was in a cast and he ran on to his face, knee and hip injuries. Just after his return from Stockholm Douwe was also involved in a brawl in a café in Haarlem. There were some blows, but he was not injured.
