Tickets for the upcoming Stiftfestival in the Netherlands go on sale to the general public today, Monday 6th July.
Artistic Director Daniel Rowland and the rest of the festival organisers are thrilled that they are able to run a ‘limited edition’ of their annual festival, with over 20 concerts and a hugely exciting list of artists, despite all of the hurdles!
The festival takes place from 23rd to 29th August, with a maximum audience of 100 for any event at each indoor venue. Tickets were offered to Friends of the festival a few weeks ago, so quite a few of them sold out immediately. However….
The central concerts will also be exclusively live-streamed, and tickets for these will be available in the first week of August. We will post more information about this in the coming weeks.
Daniel Rowland is looking forward to presenting a programme that seems especially apposite in the current circumstances. He explains:
At the core of the festival will be 6 afternoon concerts in the intimate, ancient Stiftkerk (all given twice and also live-streamed) offering a journey through Beethoven’s Piano Sonatas and chamber music, celebrating the timeless Beethovenian ideals of Brotherhood, Freedom, Nature, Love and humanity.
The festival highlights the beauty of Twente, with concerts in castles, medieval churches and cathedrals and in forests and gardens, with an adventurous and eclectic programme. We move to large venues, such as the Muziekcentrum in Enschede, the Plechelmusbasiliek in Oldenzaal and the gorgeous gardens of Huis Singraven and Kasteel Twickel for concerts ranging from ‘Metamorphoses’ and ‘Thanksgiving’ to ‘Love and madness’ and ‘TANGO’!
The full festival programme is available here. Please do check back here in early August for details of how to view the concerts online if you can’t be in Twente!
