EXPEDITIONS START AT DE STADSKAS
Feel like a bit of exploration? Participants in Explore expeditions get to see Leeuwarden city centre from a very different perspective. As part of a select group of explorers, you will be visiting various hidden locations where artists will be performing in intimate venues. In previous editions, intrepid explorers were treated to artists including Spinvis, Siv Jakobsen, A.L. Snijders and Adrian Crowley in small-scale intimate settings in beautiful buildings such as an old soapworks, the ceramics museum cellar and the treasure room of the local historical society Historisch Centrum Leeuwarden (HCL). Of course this year's expedition locations are still a closely guarded secret.
In any event, guides from A Guide to Leeuwarden will show you that Leeuwarden is a city brimming with stories.
Times & signing up
On both Saturday and Sunday, the expeditions will begin at 2 PM, 2:30 PM, 3 PM, 3:30 PM, 4 PM and 4:30 PM. There are two different kinds of expeditions, all lasting 1½ hours. Both expeditions will be setting off four times in groups of 25, departing from the heart of the festival, De Stadskas on Oldehoofsterkerkhof.
You can sign up here. The expeditions are only open to visitors with a festival wristband. Unfortunately, this year's expeditions are not suitable for wheelchair users.
