The Dutch Charts , until 2014 GfK Dutch Charts , are Dutch music charts that are determined by GfK Entertainment and published online in collaboration with Hung Medien . They essentially comprise the single Top 100 and the album Top 100 .
Today's Top 100 singles were started in 1969 by VPRO as Hilversum 3 Top 30 . Predecessors were both the Tijd Voor Teenagers Top 10 , which existed between November 30, 1963 and February 5, 1966, and the Parool Top 20 (also known as PS Popparade ), which existed between October 30, 1965 and July 26, 1969 . Since May 23, 1969, the NOS also put together the Hilversum 3 Elpee Top 10 , the first LP charts . On December 4, 1970, the NOS also took over the single charts. From June 27, 1974, the lists were drawn up with the establishment of the National Hit Parade by Buma / Stemra and from the end of 1977 by the Intomart office on behalf of Buma / Stemra . From December 1989 the Stichting Nationale Top 100 was responsible for the creation, from February 1993 the Stichting Mega Top 50 , from 1997 the Stichting Mega Top 100 , from 1999 finally Mega Charts BV (a joint subsidiary of the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 and the Stichting Mega Top 100 ). After Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 left the Mega Charts company, Stichting Mega Top 100 took over the charts together with GfK . At first they were called GfK Mega Charts , from the end of March 2008 the name GfK Dutch Charts will apply . In 2015 the name was shortened to Dutch Charts .
As a follow-up list to Elpee Top 10 , the LP Top 20 was created in 1969, which has been produced every two weeks since December 6, 1969 by Radio Veronica and the magazine Stereo Revue . In 1974 the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 took over the list. In the course of the collaboration between Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 and Stichting Mega Top 50, the respective album charts merged in 1999. Since 2011, the Stichting Nederlandse Top 40 has again published its own album charts, the Album Top 40 .

In January 2003, 3FM reduced the top 100 to 50 positions. However , the Top 100 continued to exist under the name B2B Top 100 , from May 2004 as a single Top 100. These were only published online. The Mega Top 50 , which will be broadcast by 3FM from May 2004 , in contrast to the Single Top 100, also increasingly include airplay . Both lists can be seen as the successor to the original Mega Top 50 from 1993.
On May 5, 2006, digital download sales were also recorded for the first time from online providers such as iTunes , Radio 538 , Tiscali and others. Initially, download-only publications did not make it into the charts. From this edition of the charts on, they were pure sales charts because airplay was removed from the calculation at the same time. When music streaming became more and more popular in the early 2010s , song requests from streaming providers such as Spotify and Deezer were also included in the chart determination . This data was also included for the first time in the chart edition of July 6, 2013.

Since February 6, 1993, compilations were excluded from the list and placed in their own Verzamelalbum Top 30 (later compilation Top 30 ). Since April 17, 2010, sales of the compilations have also been included in the combined Combi Album Top 100 . In addition, since 2003 albums older than two years have been placed in the so-called back catalog Top 50 (and from 2010 also in the Combi Album Top 100 ). From July 1, 2012, albums were also excluded from the album Top 100, which cost 8 euros and less, and instead relocated to the mid-price Top 50 ; At the same time, the back catalog Top 50 was discontinued. At the beginning of April 2019, the mid-price top 50 was also discontinued, so that even cheap albums can again be included in the top 100 of the album charts.
