Festival Classique in The Hague has become a household name in the music world in recent years. The event introduces people to classical music in a surprising and relaxed way. By offering unique performances for visitors from a few months old to well over eighty, Festival Classique shows that classical music is fun for everyone!
From 13th until 16th of June, Scheveningen beach will be converted into a festival site where you can enjoy classical music by top musicians and crossovers with pop music, film and dance with your feet in the sand.
Festival Classique is the classical music festival for everyone and breaks through the fixed setting of classical music, leaves the concert halls for what they are, builds an iconic festival site in the middle of Scheveningen beach and lets the sand, the wind and the sun reverberate in the music. And between the concerts you can enjoy a snack and drink at the catering pavilion.
Program Festival Classique
Three days packed with different performances and acts, partly with ticket sales and partly free. The program for Festival Classique 2024 has not yet been announced. View all current information on the Festival Classique website.
Festival Classique is located by the sea and therefore naturally relates to nature, which can also be seen and heard in many productions.
The festival locations are surrounded by all kinds of other attractions in Scheveningen, such as Museum Beelden aan Zee, De Pier, SEA LIFE, the Circustheater and Holland Casino. In the immediate vicinity there is plenty to do for young and old. Museum Beelden aan Zee, hidden in the dunes, is the only museum in the Netherlands entirely devoted to sculpture. After a wonderful walk on the beach, you can enjoy a delicious meal with a view of the sea at De Pier, the restaurants and cafes on the boulevard and the beach bars. The AFAS Circustheater and Holland Casino guarantee a fun night out in Scheveningen. And the historic city center of The Hague is only fifteen minutes away from the beach of Scheveningen!
Scheveningen is quickly and easily accessible from the center of The Hague by public transport, car and bicycle. In all cases it takes about fifteen minutes.
