About us

Since 2006 Festival Classique has devoted itself to show that classical music is an enrichment for everybody. With Festival Classique we leave the beaten track and expectation patterns of classical music, without compromising the quality of the music. That is why our concert programmes and locations are often unlike anything else and with eye for detail. We do not only offer a concert, but a total experience. We surprise our visitors with combinations between different forms of art like dance, theatre and film and classical music.

With our programming we reach all age categories, from young to old. The programming consists of a broad variety of free and paid performances, concerts and activities. In the open air, in the middle of the beach, we surprise and challenge the audience to experience the music in a different way. The festival offers a stage to professional musicians, music students and to amateurs from the region of The Hague. This connection inspires!

Every year Festival Classique invites pupils from elementary and secondary schools in The Hague to experience the festival at customized performances. In addition to that Festival Classique cooperates closely with various care and welfare organizations to involve also audiences that otherwise do not or hardly get into touch with live performed classical music at the festival.

Festival Classique attracts thousands of visitors every year. In addition to paid concerts, the festival offers much more. For example, visitors and passers-by are welcome in the freely accessible, multicultural Music Café, where the festival offers a stage to young talent. Around the festival grounds, on the boulevard and Kurhausplein, Festival Classique provides free performances and cultural activities.
