DOEK FESTIVAL 2018 – THIS IS OUR MUSIC
Thursday 14 June – Sunday 17 June
This year, Doek will go back to its roots and focus on the projects of its individual members. Each core musician has taken the liberty to pick a group that explores or expresses something personal to them. Of course, the result is quite a varied programme with musicians from across the globe. Performances will take place at Splendor, the Bimhuis, De Ruimte, and numerous surprise venues for the annual bicycle tour. Doek will also host workshops in the Bimhuis. 12 sessions in total with each Doek core member leading at least one session. The workshop ensemble will have a final performance during the bike tour.
