It's time for a new beginning. Leeuwarden-Friesland 2018 will be reopened at the end of this year. Together, we look to our future, to new beginnings. In this show full of surprises, we work with fresh courage, hope and a strong motivation for the years to come. Our legacy.

2018: a fantastic cultural year, that’s a promise! While other events slowly come to a close, a highlight awaits Leeuwarden-Friesland in the autumn. We celebrate the beautiful moments we experienced together and look ahead to what's around the corner. We start the year anew and everyone is welcome to our city of festivals.

A festival full of surprises
