Festival Classique in The Hague has become a household name in the music world in recent years. The event manages to introduce 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!

The classical music festival for everyone

From 19th to 21st of June 2025, Scheveningen beach will be transformed 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, leaving the concert halls for what they are, building an iconic festival site in the middle of Scheveningen beach and letting the sand, wind and sun shine through in the music. And between concerts, you can enjoy snacks and drinks at the catering pavilion.

Nature 

Festival Classique is located by the sea and therefore naturally relates to nature, which can also be seen and heard in many productions. 

Scheveningen

The festival locations are surrounded by all kinds of other attractions in Scheveningen, such as Museum Beelden aan Zee, De Pier, SEA LIFE, Legoland Discovery Centre, the AFAS 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!
