Explore the North is a winter city festival consisting of two parts this year. There is the festival weekend itself, on 22, 23 and 24 November, but Explore the North will be kicking off earlier this time.
In the weeks prior to the festival weekend, there will be some exciting performances, including ‘Church of Ignorance’ by Liquid Loft.
The programme of the festival itself includes Mauro Pawlowski & Braaknoot Ensemble, who will pay tribute to Boudewijn de Groot’s fourth album Nacht & Ontij. Others present will include Mark Kozelek from Sun Kil Moon, Julia Holter, the flying-finger pianist Lubomyr Melnyk, Annelie, Ghostpoet, the Norwegian author Johan Harstad, Pardans, the British folk-soul group Matthew and the Atlas, AK/DK, Jessica Moss, WWWater, L.A. Salami, Lisa Morgenstern and Tryater: Europe the Village. Together with Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie, the festival will also present Mechanical Ecstasy by Club Guy & Roni and Slagwerk Den Haag. Yiddish Waves is also collaborating with Explore the North, and showing its new multilingual project As She Sings.
