Minimal Music Festival 2023

Minimal Music Festival 2023

12 Apr - 16 Apr - Muziekgebouw & BIMHUIS

Over the course of five days, Muziekgebouw and BIMHUIS will be dedicated to minimal music in its broadest sense: from pioneers Steve Reich and Philip Glass to today’s makers. As such, Minimal Music Festival 2023 celebrates the power of repetition. Repetition that never stays the same, that changes itself and brings about change.
