International Music Meeting Festival
International Music Meeting Festival delves deep into the diversity of styles of music from all over the globe. Each year in Nijmegen, the festival - complete with camping and special activities for children - strives for adventure, spontaneity and quality.
International Music Meeting Festival - global diversity in music styles
As multi-faceted as the festival has come to be, its biggest talking point is its extraordinary music - a fine blend of jazz, roots and rock from all around the world.
International Music Meeting Festival, also known simply as Music Meeting, happens during the Pentecost weekend at Park Brakkenstein in Nijmegen, the oldest city in the Netherlands. From May 27 to 29, 2023, the picturesque park will turn into a haven of world music and an unforgettable festival location with an astoundingly diverse programme of styles of music from all across the world.
The festival has been going strong since 1985. It was initially known as Multicultural Dance and Improvised Music Meeting and has since evolved into the large-scale festival that it is today. This year's festival has the theme The Light is Always Changing.
