On the 1st and 2nd of September, the Embassy Festival will, for the fifth year running, transform the Lange Voorhout into a sea of culture. On the evening of the 1st, the festivities will kick-off at 17.00 with one stage offering a diverse and colourful programme.
The festival will fully commence on Saturday the 2nd of September, starting at 12.00 and boasts four stages, the Kids Compound and the International Market. At the Contemporary stage we will welcome Baptiste W.Hamon (FRA), who’s known to steal the hearts of many with his Americana chansons, and Brian Deady (IRL), a rising star from the Emerald Isle, who will take the audience on a journey with his uplifting and soulful voice. On the Classical Stage, the audience will be swept away by well-known pianists Valentina Tóth (HUN) and Luke Welch (CAN).
The festival welcomed 35.000 visitors from all different ages in 2016. Expecting around 50 countries to participate in this year’s festival, the cultural (music, dance, theatre) and culinary richness of all these different countries will transform the Lange Voorhout into a worldly experience. Get transported into a different world and travel across countries such as Finland, Slovenia, Bangladesh, Costa Rica, Slovakia, Saudi-Arabia, India, Romania, Sudan, Russia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Cuba, France, Mongolia, Guatemala, Canada, Ukraine, Hungary, Austria, Haiti, Palestine, Bolivia, Ghana, Greece, Bulgaria and Ireland.
The Embassy Festival is a testament that culture brings people together.
