It is slowly starting to get a tradition but in the end of august there will be a new Binnenhof Festival. Not sure about this years dates but it'll surely be posted on the web page. See link below. Well, i just checked the website and apparently it is a real tradition now..... Too bad i won't be here in august 2008. I had to laugh though, the picture of the festival's website haas virtually the same picture that i took in 2003.

On wednesday it is all kinds of world and pop music. Much fun.

On Thursday is the day that DANCE is the item. And it is so fantastic to see the dancers perform in such a beautiful location. Last year it was superb. As it was the year before.

On Friday is the day for classical music. For me the most appropriate in a location as this. But thatīs just my opinion.

If you want to be sure to have a seat you can buy tickets beforehand, They're already on sale (from the 15th of july) and cost 5 euro.

The number of seats is limited, so ?first come first serve?.

There is wheelchair access and (limited) space reserved

No tickets will be available on the nights itself. But since the Binnenhof is a public footpath you can enjoy the performances for free. Seats are only available if not all tickets have been sold out. And if the place gets too crowded, people without a ticket will have to leave..

If the weather is good, it is a very magical ambiance with the Binnenhof as perfect surroundings. For bad whether there will be some cover, but better bring a coat and umbrella. To be on the save side.

Dress Code: Depends on the weather but in general warm. It is outdoors and you stand or sit still for several hours.
