Guide to the Holland Festival

Holland Festival
Holland Festival

May 31st - June 23rd, 2019

The Holland Festival takes place yearly during the month of June, in the main and smaller venues of Amsterdam. Since 1947 the Holland Festival is the leading international performing arts festival in the Netherlands. The festival offers a broad scope of international performing arts with a mix of performances and concerts from all corners of the world. The festival features established names as well as new talent, showing innovation in art and exploring new types of venue and forms of theatre. The Holland Festival's tradition of innovation is further expanded by opening the festival up, for instance by staging performances, concerts and events in public spaces.
