Night of a 1000 Strings?

Night of a 1000 Strings is this edition's theme for the Dutch Harp Festival. The day program will be similar to last editions and from the evening on, we'll reinvent ourselves and create a whole new experience. In beautifully decorated venues, transformed by visuals, projections and light installations, we present genre bending musicians and artists on the verge of their breakthroughs.

There will be a mix of ambient, pop, jazz, folk, classical and everything in between. Special collaborations, sound installations, there is plenty for you to discover. For the ultimate experience, consider staying overnight and participate in a guided ceremony full of strings.
