Info for professional visitors

Noorderzon is an eleven-day international manifestation of the performing arts and, at the same time, a large-scale festival in a splendid park: the monumental Noorderplantsoen. Here, tens of thousands of people gather every day, to enjoy the many performances, shows and concerts, or just to have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. We offer an elaborate range of performances and activities, varying from from a literature programme to children’s activities, from shows by internationally renowned companies to those of local collectives, and a lot more…

A large but temporary festival village is erected in the park, with many different stages, art objects, bars, restaurants, as well as other constructions. Noorderzon, however, also extends to the city centre. Outside the park there are around twenty other venues, both small and large, that generously open their doors to our activities. Noorderzon DownTown is what we call the festival area outside the park.
