After cancelling this year’s festival due to global COVID-19 pandemic, today we announce that the tenth edition of the festival will take place from 8 to 11 April 2021.
Due to go ahead over the weekend of 3 – 5 April 2020, the tenth edition of Rewire would have taken place across various city centre locations in The Hague, The Netherlands, with a multidisciplinary programme extended to the forest and to the beach of Scheveningen. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the inevitable decision was made to cancel the 2020 edition of the festival.
We’re excited to reveal that spirit of Rewire 2020 will continue throughout the year as several events will be postponed to the Rewire x Korzo concert series in fall, as well as to the festival in 2021. The concert of Jon Hopkins presents ‘Polarity’, taking place at Zuiderstrandtheater, has also been postponed to Wednesday 11 November 2020. If you have purchased an individual ticket for Polarity, these are still valid. Further ticket information will be announced on the Rewire website.
The tenth edition of Rewire will be expanded with an extra day, taking place from 8 to 11 April 2021 and incorporating a number of events from the 2020 festival edition. We can already reveal that the following commissioned projects will be presented at Rewire 2021: Hildur Guðnadóttir presents ‘Chernobyl’, and the Music for a Busy City programme, created in response to specific city centre locations in The Hague. Special projects by The Caretaker & Weirdcore, Semiconductor & Eartheater present ‘Fracture Patterns’, and SOPHIE are also confirmed for Rewire 2021.
From the Rewire team, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has sent messages of support during this period, and to all ticket holders who have chosen to donate some or all of their ticket fee. We are extremely grateful to our funding partners and our long term friends at Carhartt WIP for sticking with us during these uncertain times. We look forward to welcoming you to The Hague next year, or in fall.
