Hortus Festival Amsterdam 2018

The dead speaks


Enjoy classical music during the Hortus Festival in Amsterdam from the 25th of July to the 11th of August. This year’s theme is “Death Speaks” and touches upon life after death and the various way we view life and the time that comes after. The composers all translated this theme to music, combined with the beautiful location and intimate setting it is an event you shouldn’t miss!

The program Hortus Festival Amsterdam

The festival is held in 5 different locations, Wageningen, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Leiden and Amsterdam. All locations have two festival days a week with music in the afternoon and evening. Here at Hello Amsterdam we focus on the planning for Amsterdam.
