All about Zwarte Cross

Zwarte Cross (literally "black cross") is derived from the motocross scene and makes reference to the festivals meagre beginnings as a rock and motocross racing party in the woods near Hummelo in 1997. 

Although it's hard to believe, not only was it a success, but that meagre festival grew to be the largest paid festival in the Netherlands.

In 2013, there were a total of 162.795 visitors on the 137.5 hectares of festival terrain. 

The 2014 edition promises to be just as popular with 26 stages, nearly 200 bands from the Netherlands and abroad, 800 theatre makers, 10 "pastures" divided by discipline (poetry/theatre, disco, hard rock, Tyrolean folk, blues and pop just to name a few) and full-scale motocross race tracks!

In addition to the nearly endless entertainment, Zwarte Cross also has a programme dedicated to stunts, mostly pertaining to motocross, but also for firework displays and adventurous driving (to put it lightly).
