What are your plans this Friday? After a long week at work, what better way to celebrate the weekend than with good music, food and delicious drinks at one of the most beautiful places in the The Hague?
As it’s the fifth edition of the Embassy Festival, we thought long and hard about how to celebrate this and came to only one conclusion: we should add another evening to the festival, in addition to the Saturday, so everyone can come straight after work and enjoy great music. On friday night some of the best food trucks of the Netherlands will be ready to serve you their best dishes. So come to the Lange Voorhout straight after work and bring your friends, colleagues and everyone else that would enjoy this!
Expect a dazzling music programme with Iranian musician, songwriter and composer Faarjam who will perform his dreamy and melodic songs on a stage right in front of the Diligentia theatre. Levi Silvanie, who was born in Curacao and has soul and rhythm streaming through his veins, will take you on a musical journey through the Caribbean. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the charismatic and moving songs from Ethiopian-born Minyeshu, who has has in the past performed with famed African colleagues such as Salif Keita, Youssou N’Dour and Angelique Kidjo. Your caffeine fix will be taken care of by Koffie. With their afro-, latin- and funk grooves, the Dutch band hope to bring people together, something that the Embassy Festival embraces as well.
Friday 1 September 5pm – 11pm, Lange Voorhout, The Hague.
