Symfo Mania Playlist Archive

Symfo Mania was the weekly special covering symphonic and progressive rock music, broadcast every Tuesday evening on Dutch website/DAB+ Arrow Bluesrock Radio.

Presented by Maarten Goossensen through June 2022, and by Marcel Debets from September that same year until June 2023, it covered recent releases as well as classics and rarities from the genre's rich history. The future of Symfo Mania is currently uncertain.

The Symfo Top 25, broadcast each year in October (except in 2009, 2013 and 2014), ranks the best tracks of all time as voted by the show's fans.
