Koen Herfst is one of the most energetic and versatile drummers of The Netherlands. He is known for his work with Armin van Buuren, with who he did two world tours in venues like Madison Square Garden (New York City) and The Forum (Los Angeles). Another highlight with Armin was coming down from the ceiling of the Amsterdam Arena (Ajax stadium) with drum set!

Together with Paul Quinn (Saxon) and Harrison Young (Doro), Koen’s blues-rock band The Cards released their self-titled first album in January 2019. Koen also toured with After Forever, Epica, Anneke van Giersbergen , I CHAOS, Dew-Scented and was voted ‘Best Hardrock Drummer of Benelux’ for 5 years in a row.

He runs his own drum festival, HERFSTFEST,and co-organized the biggest drum event ever in The Netherlands: 2000 Drummers on the Beach, together with his great friend and Dutch drum-legend Cesar Zuiderwijk (Golden Earring) .

Next to playing drums, Koen is a multi-instrumentalist and composes his own music, as well as music for other artists and events.
