St. Patrick’s Day, Ireland 2019@ Dublin, Ireland
Mar 14 – Mar 18 all-day


Future Festival Dates:
2019: Thursday 14th – Monday 18th March
2020: Saturday 14th – Tuesday 17th March

St. Patrick’s Day is always on 17th March.
Every year on the 17th March people around the world celebrate St Patrick’s Day. St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and is credited with popularising Christianity in Ireland in the 5th Century.

Ireland welcomes the world to five great days in Dublin. The principal aim of St. Patrick’s Festival, since its inauguration, is to develop a major annual international festival around the national holiday over which the ‘owners’ of the festival, the Irish people, would stand proud. With laughs, unlimited alcohol, food, music and the widest variety of green-inspired costumes the festival is a must. As the one national holiday that is celebrated in more countries around the world than any other, St. Patrick’s Day is the day when everyone wants to be Irish.

Why was it started?

To offer a national festival that ranks amongst all of the greatest celebrations in the world.
To create energy and excitement throughout Ireland via innovation, creativity, grassroots involvement, and marketing activity.
To provide the opportunity and motivation for people of Irish descent (and those who sometimes wish they were Irish) to attend and join in the imaginative and expressive celebrations.
To project, internationally, an accurate image of Ireland as a creative, professional and sophisticated country with wide appeal.
The first St. Patrick’s Festival was held over one day, and night, on March 17th, 1996, it has since grown to a 5-day celebration and consists of multiple events throughout the city including the main event the parade which is always held March 17th.

We set out to seize that opportunity, and completely transform the national and international perception of St. Patrick’s Day in Dublin. This country is bursting with the kind of creative energy, ideas, and enthusiasm required to do the job. Our job has been to harness them and make our national holiday an unforgettable experience for all.

Storytelling is the theme for the 2019 edition of the Festival. Ireland has a deep-rooted connection to storytelling reaching back thousands of years, spanning the centuries to include the many modern storytellers of today. From Irish mythology and the great defining historical moments of our past to our heroes through the ages and their legacies, the stories are manifold – both old and the modern stories shaping the island of Ireland today. For the Festival Parade, pageant companies will come together to celebrate the art of Irish storytelling creating spectacles and performances that will resonate with those near and far, unearthing old and new stories of extraordinary experiences, to celebrate on our national holiday. The festival Parade also features domestic and international marching bands that perform musical scores that compliment the festival theme of Storytelling.

Events that have been announced thus far:

  • ·         Abair series: a programme of traditional singing and storytelling events that will take place across the city in a variety of different venues.
  • ·         Greening the city: buildings, venues, and spaces across the city illuminate green for the Festival.
  • ·         Culture Vultures: a night of music and conversation at The Sound House. Hosted by pop culture critic/writer Tony Clayton-Lea, this event promises to captivate minds with music from two-time Grammy-nominee Iarla Ó Lionáird and guitar virtuoso Steve Cooney.

The St. Patrick’s Festival full programme and event catalog will be launched on February 12th; all information will be available from the official St. Patricks Festival website on this date.

Doek Festival@ Diverse locaties / various locations , 1019 BR AMSTERDAM
Jun 13 – Jun 15 all-day

Doek Festival

The Doek Festival is an annual international improvisation festival organized and programmed by the Amsterdam-based musicians’ collective Doek. The festival aims to present the current state of improvised music and related art forms in all their diversity. The festival has grown from a one-day affair to a multi-day event spread around various venues in Amsterdam, including the internationally renowned Bimhuis. We reach an audience of around 1500, with many more following on social media.


The Doek Festival is the only Dutch festival dedicated to improvisation. In the last few editions we have finally hit on our ideal festival programming and working method. We look around us at the world of improvisation and try to identify what is happening at this moment. We then invite a pool of musicians who we think best represent that trend/city/approach. They play in established and ad hoc groups, work on new compositions and improvisations and present the results at carefully selected locations around Amsterdam. The audience is not only introduced to new and surprising line-ups, but also to unusual and inspiring locations in Amsterdam. This festival is not about big numbers and big names, but about presenting high quality music in the most suitable context. We reach a diverse public by staying close to the source of the music, presenting related art forms and actively engaging with our audience.


Background information

Doek is a non-profit organization. It has a core member ship of 8 musicians – Eric Boeren, John Dikeman, Kaja Draklser, Oscar Jan Hoogland, Wilbert de Joode, Michael Moore, Jasper Stadhouders and Wolter Wierbos – who program the festival, play in various bands, develop projects individually and together, and tour locally and internationally. Coordinator Carolyn Muntz is responsible for the day to day running of the collective, putting artistic decisions into practice and producing the Doek festival. Since 2001 Doek has received structural funding from the national government via the Fonds Podiumkunsten (Fund for Performing Arts). The festival is partly funded from Doek’s structural funding, and partly from local government, private funding bodies and ticket sales.
