Festival Description

The annual International Gipsy Festival—an extravaganza of colorful, joyful and refreshing gypsy music that is full of energy and character. Numerous musicians and dancers from across Europe and Russia make their way to Tilburg. These artists include musicians, dancers, writers and photographers who take part in music performances and dancing, exhibitions, films, theatre, debate, concerts, workshops and more. Within the framework of the festival during the week preceding the main festival events a number of Gipsy jazz and improvisation take place in the evenings. Several artists use the location for a month as an open workshop and where several concerts take place as well. Bands present their current repertoire of traditional gipsy-mix, hip-hop, jazz, Balkan music, brass bands and flamenco. In addition to the music there is theatre and dancing where participants enjoy the events as an annual reunion.
