Welcome music lover! You have arrived at the website of Music Meeting Festival in Nijmegen, where you will find all information about the festival program of both the upcoming and past festival editions.
Due to the corona pandemic, Music Meeting Festival didn't take place in 2020 and 2021. However, we did not skip the 2022 edition. In the theme 'Cuba Upside Down' we have succeeded in turning the rainy Park Brakkenstein into an oasis. Read more here, or view the photos. In the online Cuba Upside Down environment you can also find more about our source of inspiration: Cuba.
On 27, 28 and 29 May 2023 we will be back with a brand new edition. In the meantime, for Music Meeting inspiration, we invite you to visit the Music Meeting All Ears section of our digital world. Our very own music channel where fans of adventurous music can discover and explore new music and background stories all year round.
Music Meeting Festival
Cutting right across styles, genres and cultures, Music Meeting Festival had been providing a platform for over 35 years for the world’s best artists: musicians who have rarely or never performed in the Netherlands, with new projects or in special line-ups. During the festival weekend, Park Brakkenstein in Nijmegen is traditionally the setting for musical encounters, with over thirty concerts spread over three days.
Music Meeting Festival does not limit itself to one music genre, but programmes a very range, covering everything from new co-productions by noted jazz musicians and the latest salsa from Cuba to Asian avant-garde.
Cuba Upside Down
For the 2022 festival edition, we've introduced a special Cuba Upside Down online environment, where you can discover more about Cuba and the Cuban artists that played at Music Meeting. Developed exclusively for Music Meeting in collaboration with the Cuban online magazine AM.PM. Featuring playlists, podcasts, videos, photography and much, much more!
