Support the Grachtenfestival

Every year in August, the Grachtenfestival organizes over 250 concerts at 100 different locations, in the background the beautiful city of Amsterdam. The presentation and development of young musicians (classical and jazz oriented) are important to the festival organisation. Who wants to get to know the rising stars of the future, visits the Grachtenfestival!

At this moment, April 2020, we don't know yet if we can and will be allowed to organise concerts for a (smaller) audience, or if we need to move our activities to the online platforms. We do know that 2020 will be an exceptional year. We will do everything in our power to present as much musicians and their talents. To be doing this, we could use your help, very much. 

Do you want to contribute to the future of the Grachtenfestival? You are more than welcome to become donor, ambassador or sponsor. You will help young musicians to have a stage to tell their musical stories to a wide audience on. 



Are you a fan of the Grachtenfestival? You can support us by a one-off donation, via our dation page. Every donation is a big help. Thanks a lot!

Yes, I want to donate!
