De locaties

Are all locations accessible by wheelchair?

A large number of the our locations are easily accessible for wheelchairs, but unfortunately not all. On our website, you can see which locations are accessible for wheelchairs users. 

Is it possible to use my home as a venue?

The Canal Festival strives to add new locations to its program each year. If you would like to open up your home, please contact the organization. Your home must be located in the festival area - roughly speaking, the Singel, Heren-, Keizers- and Prinsengracht (between the Amstel river and the Haarlemmerstraat) with possible extensions towards Nieuwmarkt its the surrounding area. Please note in advance that the Canal Festival will not pay a fee for the use of your home.

Why are the locations for the House, Garden and Rooftop Concerts kept secret until the last minute?

The HTDs are held in private canal houses. Most of the musicians are winners of competitions at home and abroad. The Canal Festival is happy to combine these two groups - but ultimately the concert remains the most important to us. We think the choice will be less influenced by the location if we keep it a secret for as long as possible. It also means that we cause as little concern as possible for the venue owners, whom we greatly appreciate for their hospitality.

Overig

Is het Grachtenfestival verbonden aan Grachtenfestival Meppel en Grachtenfestival aan de Maas?

No, both Canal Festival Meppel as well as the Maas are independent organizations. The Canal Festival in Amsterdam and the Maas do work together in the area of programming. For example, some musicians can be seen (and heard) at both festivals.
