What is Flamenco Biënnale?
The Dutch Flamenco Biennial is a two-yearly trendsetting music and dance festival in the Netherlands and Belgium presenting the latest developments in flamenco since 2006. With contemporary creators who make up the vanguard of flamenco, we explore the borders of the genre ánd dive deep into the arte jondo.
Every two years we provide an effervescent platform to the flamenco arts in Europe with a high-quality genre- and discipline transcending festival programme in which diversity and multidisciplinarity are paramount. This year we're bringing you a mixed festival of online and offline performances.
