The Hague will be soaked in a tropical, African atmosphere during The Hague African Festival on Sunday, 14 July in the Zuiderparktheater. A colourful and inviting window onto the Africa of today with an emphasis on traditional as well as festive dance music.
Organisers have put together a wide and broad musical programme with bands and acts from all over the world. This year’s free festival will feature the popular Afrobeats sound on 2 stages: the main acts will be on the Wakanda Stage and up-and-coming local talent can be found on the Talent Stage.
Market and kids’ programme
The festival will feature a lively and varied market with African and Fair Trade products on sale at dozens of market stalls. African cuisine will appeal to everybody’s taste buds and appetite.
There will also be an interactive programme for children in the Children’s Village. Kids can enjoy a cultural programme full of music, theatre, workshops, stories and a children’s playground. Musical kids (and parents) can show their talent to the audience on the grand stage. In the special African tents, djembé classes will be given and you can attend an educational programme on how people live in Africa.
Art expo in Atrium
Apart from the main festival on 14 July, the Atrium in The Hague City Hall will feature the special ‘Muziek als Communicatiemiddel’ art exhibition from 1 to 12 July. Like last year the exhibition will be produced in partnership with Stichting Topaze.
The Hague African Festival will be held from 14.00 to 22.00 hrs. on Sunday, 14 July in and around the Zuiderparktheater in Zuiderpark.
Entrance is free of charge.
