To get in the mood for Kunstnacht and to introduce new audiences who are not yet familiar with Kunstnacht in an accessible way, a pre-party is now being organized for the first time in the center of Nijmegen the evening before Kunstnacht.

At Loek, Brouwerij Florijn, PAAK, Het Alternatief, Club Novia and Club Freya you will find a diverse and freely accessible program on Friday evening, September 15: from hip-hop dance performance and interactive performance to live pop music and club evening.

From 8:30 PM to 12:00 AM you will regularly find short performances on Faberplein. At Loek it is a hip-hop dance performance by Eden & Jenno, curated by The Mansion. As young makers, they look at the world with new eyes and conclude: “The world is moving fast and we have to move even faster. We want to tell so we get moving, because what better language to really show than dance?”

At Browerij Florijn you will be surprised by AMUSE / POPOP Performance Hub. A bar. Two performers. And unsuspecting café goers. Performers Elky Rosa Gerritsen and Danielle Brans perform in an unusual setting. Expect poetic images, physical (im)possibilities and absurd elements.

At 9.30 pm on the stage of HetAlternatief in de Hertogstraat: tight pop with an alternative sound from Neighbors Knocking. Acoustic, electronic and all genres mixed together. Expect lots of guitars, pianos and synths, tight beats with a human warmth, candid lyrics with a touch of irony and careful, passionate compositions. Their debut album will be released later this year, but De Basis is already introducing you to them, truly a pre-party!

PAAK brings the Argentinian duo Furor Exotica to de Bloemerstraat, for a delicious portion of Italo disco until late at night. Resident DJ Thijs Moors will heat up the dance floor from 9 p.m.

The new Club Novia in de Molenstraat brings 'Resonate with the sound', a club night from 11 p.m. full of house and deep tech, with Batune, MARSOLO, TIJMN and VABO. Visuals in Kunstnacht style put the club in a completely different light!

Club Freya opens its doors at 11 p.m. and provides a special Art Night vibe to their club night full of house & disco.
