Earlier, we announced thirteen names and now you can find the complete programme on our website. From Thursday 29 June 12:00, it will be possible to buy tickets for all performances. That means the puzzling in the programme can begin. This year, we are helping the public by using eight filters, which will help you choose from our offer of over a hundred performances, concerts and other experiences. You will find these filters in Boulevard Magazine 2 and on our website: Celebrate, World and Us, Brabant soil, Unusual venues, With the kids, Into the Night, New Talent and Also for the small purse. Also new this year is the block schedule on the website, making it easier to make your planning.

 A selection of the programme

Shakuar brings together vocalists Shishani and Karima el Fillali on the first day of the festival. Both artists with a deep sense of intimacy, creating enchanting and transformative music.

BERLIN comes with Zvizdal Back to Boulevard. In 2016, the acclaimed Zvizdal by BERLIN, already on show during the festival. Zvizdal sketches the portrait of Ukrainian Pétro and Nadia, the couple who were the only ones in their village to refuse to be evacuated after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

"We don't know exactly what we've been watching, we mostly feel it. The Dancers have pulled it off again" according to Theaterkrant. Their performance HUSH premiered at Oerol in early June and can be seen in Den Bosch in August.

Composer/singer-songwriter Helge Slikker and theatre-maker Madeleine Matzer celebrate 12.5 years of collaboration with When I'm with you. A sparkling theatre concert by the Bossche theatre company MATZER Theatre Productions.

The Veenfabriek comes with MARIA MARIA MARIA. That story tells of Mary's life and that of her children. Inspired by stories from the Bible and the Koran, personal stories from the musicians and songs about bizarre medieval miracles.

On Boulevard, Yentl and the Farmer will play the festival edition of Mud crawlers, according to the jury of the Netherlands Theatre Festival, one of the most eye-catching contemporary cabaret performances of the moment.

Every night can end dancing at the BLVRD Theatre with Power To The Pipo, Elmer, Katie Koss and Mooon, among others. During the day, you can bring the kids here, as there is a children's performance every day.

On the Park Stage, you will find a surprising array of free programme. From juggling and acrobatics to diabolo and dance.

Throughout the city

This year, the festival heart is again in the Zuiderpark, in addition to BLVRD Theatre on the Parade. But you will also find performances at special locations such as the Engelermeer Lake, the Garden of St John's Cathedral, the Military Lane, Maaspoort Den Bosch and our own Pand18.

Tickets for the performances are on sale online at
