4. Venues & Map

Rewire 2024 is spread across  30+ stages at 25 different venues in The Hague’s city centre. Most venues are within walking distance of each other, and it shouldn’t take you more than a quick stroll to get from one to the other. Koninklijke Schouwburg and West Den Haag can be reached by taking Tram 16 from Central Station to the Korte Voorhout stop. You can find information about each of the Rewire 2024 locations on our Venues page. To give you a quick overview, we made a handy map.

For this performance a separate ticket has to be purchased here. Additionally, the opening programme will feature various context programme events. For the full opening programme, please visit the Rewire 2024 timetable.

8. Free Programme

Because we believe that music should be accessible to anyone, we’re hosting several free activities during Rewire 2024. Our festival’s free programme consists of musical performances, workshops, soundwalks and art installations.

The Rewire 2024 context programme
Situated around its music and performance line-up, Rewire’s context programme provides a space for reflection and brings the various practices of artists into conversation with each other. Through workshops, conversations and listening sessions and assemblies, the context programme offers free to attend events throughout The Hague’s city centre. A full overview of the context programme can be found here.

Proximity Music: States of Fragility
With their 3-day running free exhibition, Proximity Music: States of Fragility invites audiences to engage playfully with mind and body and seeks to connect music, architecture, technology, ritual, and play through physical experiences engaging with all senses. All Proximity Music: States of Fragility activities are free for everyone to attend. A full overview of the Proximity Music line-up can be found here.

Rewire x 3345 in-store
On the Saturday afternoon of Rewire 2024, we return to our favourite record store 3345 to host an in-store event. The freely accessible event bills none less than FUMU, Lila Tirando b2b Sin Maldita, Lolo Batten, and Nèna. This is the perfect moment to score some vinyl of your favourite artists, while enjoying the dopamine-inducing music of the in-store's artists.

Centrale Bibliotheek Den Haag
On Saturday 6 April an interactive installation for all ages will take place in The Hague’s Central Library. Here you can enter the colourful and musical world of The Kaleidoskosmos: an enchanting work of light and sound art.

9. Film programme

Functioning as an audiovisual companion piece to the music and context programme, this year’s film programme critically and artistically engages with thorny, interrelated issues, resulting in a kaleidoscope of deeply moving filmed works. All screened at cinema space Filmhuis Den Haag, a selection of recent films featuring Annea Lockwood – A Film About Listening, 32 Sounds, and The History is Present – are at the centre of the programme, alongside the Dutch premieres of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s final recorded live performance, Opus, and Riar Rizaldi’s Monisme, which portrays a dynamic human-nature relationship in one of the most active stratovolcanoes in the world, Mount Merapi. Find out more about the Rewire 2024 film programme and registration here.

10. Getting around at the festival

All our festival locations are located in the centre of The Hague and, are easily accessible by foot. The Hague also offers a good infrastructure for cycling if you want to get to another location faster.
