The Rewire Festival returns to The Hague for its 10th edition to bring some of the best in adventurous and experimental music and sound acts.
Rewire & cutting edge music
The Rewire Festival has garnered a reputation for presenting an eclectic mix of artists of the musical avant-garde. It’s an annual international festival that ties together a famously eclectic mix of music, including contemporary electronic music, neo-classical, new jazz, experimental pop, sound art and multidisciplinary collaborations and workshops.
Coming from all around Europe, the Rewire line-up ranges from major acts to promising artists beginning to carve out a name for themselves. Encouraging collaboration and multidisciplinary crossovers, the festival strives for creativity and pushes the boundaries of electronic, jazz, experimental pop and sound art.
As well as the main festival programme, there is an accompanying film series and audiovisual performances that further question what music is and is capable of.
