Prinsjesfestival 2019
With more than 25 cultural and political activities the Prinsjesfestival celebrates democracy in The Hague from 10 to 17 September (ending on Prinsjesdag).

Other activities include:

Prinsjes Hatwalk and Prinsjes market on the Plein
Prince’s Breakfast at a gigantic table along the entire length of the Hofvijver
performance of political satire in Theater Diligentia
photo expositions of best political moments in the Netherlands
a special children’s programme in the Koninklijke Schouwburg
Open Day at the Dutch Supreme Court
a Prinsjesdag concert by the Residentie Orkest in the Zuiderstrandtheater.
Other special recurring traditions will be a prize for the person who has played an important role in Dutch democracy and a prize for the best political book of the year and a prize for the best political photograph. A huge Prinsjesborrel reception will be organised in the Novotel City Centre on Prinsjesdag for politically-engaged young people.

Focus on Zuid-Holland
Each year a different Dutch province takes centre stage at the Prinsjesfestival. During this 7th edition of the festival, the honour will go to the province of Zuid-Holland. The flag of Zuid-Holland will fly from Nieuwspoort on the Lange Poten, this year’s so-called ‘embassy’, where the province will present itself in terms of food, health and sport.

More info
The Prinsjesfestival is made possible by volunteers and friends who support the celebration of democracy through a diverse programme of activities. Nearly all of the activities are free of charge.

Atlantikwall Museum open on Sundays only @ Scheveningen
Sep 15 all-day

The Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen feature several original German bunkers from the Second World War. The figurehead of the Atlantikwall Museum Scheveningen is the command bunker in the complex Widerstandsnest 318 (Verteidigungsstab Badhuisweg). A man-bunker has also been set up in this complex and a toilet bunker has been made accessible. On regular open days it is possible to visit the command bunker, and there are volunteers ready to provide information and answer questions.

Widerstandsnest 318 Scheveningen
The primary museum location of the foundation is an authentically furnished command bunker of the type 608 (Bataillons-, Abteilungs- oder Regiments-Gefechtsstand). From this bunker and nearby villas in the Second World War the military command of Stützpunkgruppe Scheveningen was conducted by the occupying forces. The bunker is largely original and gives you the unique experience of a tangible past. There are also original historical objects of German, British, Canadian and American forces on display.

Man’s bunker
In the adjacent man-bunker bunker of the type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) on the Badhuisweg there is a ‘time capsule’: one of the two lounges is furnished with exclusively unrestored objects. You get the impression that the bunker has remained untouched since the end of the Second World War. In reality, most bunkers in the Netherlands were looted after the war and stripped of all valuable parts. The other room is an exhibition space for photographs, art and historical objects.

Accessibility
The bunkers on the Badhuisweg are located at numbers 119-133, next to De Boshut coffee house. The museum is accessible by tram line 9. Get off at the Cremerweg stop, from there it is a two minute walk to the bunker. Car is free to park within walking distance of the museum

Entrance is 4 Euro (cash) and 2 Euro for children until 12 years.

Each and every room of the 4 magnificent buildings will be filled with an air of celebration as if we are awaiting a royal ball in another era. We see portraits of princes and princesses, stunningly styled ladies, extravagantly clad gentlemen and opulently laid out tables. Her Royal Highness Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme, Hester van Eeghen, Fransje Killaars and many other Dutch designers created sparkling jewels, luxury handbags, gilded leather room dividers and shiny ceramics. All their designs are shown alongside the historical paintings in a fairy tale setting, styled by Maarten Spruyt.

The 4-day TodaysArt festival takes place on numerous festival stages throughout the city. The full programme includes an extensive line-up of DJ and live sets, concerts, art installation and talks.

Consciousness
What is going to be humanity’s role and relevance in our digital future, and what role will philosophy, ethics, and creativity play? What is our relationship with artificial intelligence? Do we choose nature over technology? And how fine is the line between them, if there is a line at all? These are some of the questions the international festival for art, music and technology TodaysArt aims to answer this together with its artists, audience and speakers.

With this year’s festival theme ‘Consciousness’ TodaysArt leaves the dystopian scenarios on conflict, ‘black boxes’ and artificial intelligence from previous years behind. Instead, the festival focuses on the possibilities of digital technology, on topics like artificial emotions, digital consciousness, machine hallucinations and meditations, and especially humanity in the digital age.

More information
The TodaysArt festival takes place from Thursday, 19 September to Sunday, 22 September at De Electriciteitsfabriek, Theater aan het Spui, Paard and Het Magazijn in The Hague.
