GRAUZONE FESTIVAL MOVES TO THE HAGUE
After three successfull years in The Melkweg in Amsterdam, the next edition of the multidiciplinary festival Grauzone will move to The Paard Van Troje venue in The Hague. In precisely one year, on February 11 2017, Grauzone will occupy all rooms in the Paard Van Troje. The program will be dedicated to the underground culture of the 1960s to today.
The last few years Grauzone has proved itself to be an innovative Festival by combining established acts such as Echo and the Bunnymen, The Fall, The Damned and Mick Harvey with new bands like Cold Cave, Iceage, TR/ST, The Wytches and Helena Hauff. These new bands bring the do-it-yourself attitude and uncompromising musical style of the past into the 21st century. Beyond that, Grauzone has presented its own film program, symposium and exhibition GRAUKUNST, with art works of Tracy Emin, Alan Vega, Richard Kern and others.
NEW LOCATION FOR NEXT FESTIVAL EDITION
The new venue, Het Paard van Troje, has a rich history. Many great artists have performed there and today the venue offers a first-rate platform for both established names as well as new groups. The stage in The Hague offers ample growth and collaboration opportunities to strenghten the multi-disciplenary character of the Grauzone festival.
MORE DIVERSE PROGRAM
In exactly one year’s time Grauzone will land in The Hague for the first time ever with a more diverse program than previous editions. Grauzone started as a new-wave/post-punk event; today it has grown to include related genres such as 60s psych and 70s krautrock. As always, Grauzone will present well-known international artists as well as exciting new bands from both The Netherlands and and outside, together with film and visual art. Grauzone will announce the first names later this year.
