Spring 2013: another new member

22 - 29 June 2013 
The Arts Festival of North Norway has been held in Harstad since 1965. What began as a musical event with a particular focus on the meeting between amateurs and professionals, is today a top shelf international event that presents and produces a vast well of musical genres, as well as performance arts, visual arts, literature and cinematic arts. The Arts Festival also has a strong focus on children and young people, and includes people with different disabilities.



Spring 2013: First new member 

Cutting Edge Flamenco 


The acclaimed Dutch Flamenco Biennial is one of the world’s leading Flamenco Festivals and devotes itself to high class, adventurous and contemporary Flamenco.  The Biennial festival presents the latest flamenco developments with creators who make up the international vanguard of flamenco. It features a colourful palette of all flamenco forms - dance, music, song – and
shows flamenco in fresh, exciting alliances with jazz, contemporary dance and music, and in dialogue with other musical cultures that explore the boundaries of the genre. The Biennial also provides a spectacular and intimate stage for the ancient flamenco song, the cante jondo. Combining tradition with innovation, the festival offers a new and surprising view on flamenco.

The performances are complemented by an extensive programme of activities ranging from lectures by Spanish musicologists, to public master classes and workshops, flamenco movies, expositions and pre- and aftershows with local flamenco artists.
The first Flamenco Biennial in 2006 kicked off a resounding flamenco festival tradition in the Netherlands. Since then, the Netherlands offer, once every two years, an effervescent platform to the flamenco arts in Europe. The fifth anniversary edition will take place in January, 2015.
