Zeehelden Festival 2019 (10-14 July)

This year’s Zeeheldenfestival takes place from Wednesday 10 July to Sunday 14 July . It is already the 39th edition. What once started as an anniversary party with some live music has become the largest neighborhood party in The Hague. And we are proud of that!


North Sea Jazz 2019 (13-15 July)

Special attention is given this year to the British jazz scene, which flourishes in a unique way. A DIY mentality, a combination of forces and a free spirit characterize British initiatives of recent years. The first-rate music is incredibly raw, energetic and danceable, and reflects the many cultures that have come together in the United Kingdom in an exciting way. Representatives of this UK jazz scene at the festival include Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Dinosaur and Sons of Kemet.


Les Misérables @ HNT (12-14 July)

The masterpiece by copywriter Alain Boublil and composer Claude-Michel Schoenberg after the famous book by Victor Hugo about the class struggle in France after the fall of Napoleon, played, sung and danced by students of the jubilating Free Theater School in The Hague.


Over Het Ij Festival 2019 (until 14 July)

The Over het IJ Festivalbandje is your very best festival deal. You get ten days of access to thirty performances of the youngest generation of music makers. You also get a discount on drinking at the bar in the festival heart on presentation of a festival band. Note: you do not need a festival band to attend a regular show.
