This is the line-up of the 4th edition of Wonderfeel: 20, 21 and 22 July 2018.
Appropriately, Het Veld (‘The Field’) is an open-air venue and can accommodate most visitors. A cross-section of programmes is presented here, including musical performances for children.
In the White Label tent we investigate the elasticity of the term ‘classical’ music. From minimal to jazz, everything is considered, but in a slightly different way from what we’re used to.
Fittingly, unknown works in all sorts of combinations are performed on this stage, whose name literally translates as ‘unheard’.
The name says it all: only soloists perform in this tent, playing the piano, cello, bassoon, violin or percussion instruments.
Weeshuis van de Hits
The name literally means ‘orphanage of the hits’, and this is where the ‘smash hits’ of the classical repertoire can be heard, from Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ to Mozart’s ‘Turkish March’, from canto ostinato to operetta.
This schuur (‘shed’) is the location for a number of lectures. Variety, enthusiasm and freedom are the thread linking the speakers at the Wonderfeel festival.
Het Dorp (‘The Village’), will host a busy children’s programme in collaboration with OERRR, the children’s nature programme run by Natuurmonumenten. Children can investigate owl pellets, catch water creatures with a scoop net, and test their sensitive toes on the barefoot path. Under the guidance of designer and furniture-maker Jorinde Verweij they can make their own musical instruments — and try them out, of course!
Dichter onder de Boom
After the succes in 2017, Poët under the Tree returns! This poëtic part of the Wonderfeel program can call itself international with the comming of Mustafa Kör from Belgium.
