What's a kletskop?

1st edition Kletskoppen The Hague, Sunday 29th September 2019

Kletskoppen is going on tour! On Sunday September 29th we have a special edition of the festival, special because this time we won’t be the library in Nijmegen, but in The Hague. You can expect the fun language games and experiments that you’re used to from us, but also a musical performance with Dikkie Dik, and a workshop and performance by children’s author Annemarie Bon. Learn how to rap with Tyler Koudijzer and give a performance together with him on the main stage! Ajouad El Miloudi, known from television shows like De Reünie, Puberruil and Echt niet OK will be our host. For more information as well as a complete overview of the programme, look here.

The next edition of Kletskoppen in Nijmegen will be on February 29th, 2020. But that’s still so far away, so more information about that will follow later.

In the meantime, you can of course still look back at our 2018 edition. You can find an overview of the programme below. Don’t forget to take a look at the pictures and the aftermovie! Or take a look at the articles in de Gelderlander and on Kennislink (both in Dutch).

In the period preceding the previous edition of Kletskoppen in 2018, we shared some sneak peek videos of the demonstrations that you could see at the festival. And we made an aftermovie. See below! (in Dutch).
