Every year, the Wadden island of Terschelling is transformed for ten days into one big stage for theatre, dance, street theatre, the visual arts and music. Ever since 1982 when it was founded by Joop Mulder, the Oerol festival has had everything it takes to launch your summer festival season. Oerol: the first rays of summer sun, a beautiful island, an innovative theatre programme featuring both Dutch and international theatre groups, and great music for chilling out between events or - just the opposite - for letting yourself loose on the festival grounds on West-Terschelling and in Midsland.

Forget about conventional theatre for a while and spend some time at Oerol: go to the beach, the dunes, the woods, the barn, the dike or just take stroll in the streets. Wherever you look, you’re bound to see wonderful, strange or amazing things. All of this makes Oerol a festival that the theatre-lovers among us simply won’t want to miss.
