Welcome to Planet Harp!

Welcome to Planet Harp! May 12th and 13th will mark the fifth edition of the Dutch Harp Festival at TivoliVredenburg. What started off as the World Harp Competition has now become a two-day crossover festival – where the harp takes centre stage. Remy van Kesteren will guide you through a parallel universe to show you that the harp is much more than a classical instrument.

Hop on, fly with us to Planet Harp and be surprised by the exciting combinations of music, film and visuals. Dive in, immerse yourself and discover the mix of pop, classical, jazz and world music. Would you dare to step into ‘The Pit’, where there is nothing but pitch black darkness and experience what music will do to you when you can see nothing at all during one of our Concerts in the Dark? Witness the first ever performance of Spinvis playing his koto (a Japanese harp), enjoy The Best of Kraftwerk, hear a harp orchestra and be blown away by the beauty of Het Nationaal Ballet. Dance into the night with Maarten Vos during the club night on Saturday and wake up relaxed the next morning with some Harp Yoga. Last but not least, the final act of this anniversary edition will be the grand final of the DHF World Harp Competition! See you on Planet Harp!
