Stichting Holland Festival
Holland Festival is the largest international performing arts festival of the Netherlands and one of the oldest festivals of Europe. The festival was established in 1947 and will celebrate its 75-year anniversary this year. International connection has been a major aim of the Holland Festival since 1947, and this is, in fact, the reason why it was founded shortly after the war. The need for the connecting power of art is now, especially in these current times, felt particularly strongly again.
The associate artists for the 75th edition of Holland Festival, in 2022, are the French-Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo (1960) and the German theatre director Nicolas Stemann (1968). For the fourth year in a row, Holland Festival is cooperating with associate artists that are involved with the creation of part of the festival programme.
This year’s festival will be staged live, but there will be a few streams and a live stream. On Holland Festival Digital you can find more information, such as podcasts, movies, conversations with artists and music.
The Holland Festival will present 34 productions, including 10 world premieres and 14 Dutch premieres.
It takes places every year, in June, in Amsterdam, at various locations, both indoors and outdoors, both large-scale and intimate, both online and offline.
