The massive Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival returns to Groningen to present 11 days of inspiring, cutting-edge work from a mix of artistic mediums in venues across the city!

International performing arts at Noorderzon

Founded in 1991 as a merger between a local organisation hosting musical performances and an off-shoot of De Parade, Noorderzon quickly became a cultural highpoint of the Groningen summer agenda. 

Working hard to attract international talent, the festival now annually plays host to between 110.000 and 150.000 visitors. 

With the heart of the festival at the Noorderplantsoen and more than 25 locations serving as venues, Noorderzon is able to reach a diverse public and is not limited to one discipline or medium. 

A festival for everything contemporary, the specialty remains performing arts whether it be in the form of music, dance or theatre. 

The 2014 edition will see more than 85 different shows performed along with art exhibitions and a variety of side-events featuring artists from France, Australia, Cambodia, Thailand, Belgium, Hungary, South Africa and the U.S, just to name a few.
