From Guus Meeuwis to Tiësto, and from Van Gogh to the Glow light art festival: in Brabant, you can enjoy music, art and culture to the full. Leading museums and events in the field of design, food and music: Brabant has it all.
Did you know that Brabant has the highest festival density in the Netherlands? And that Brabant was voted the ‘European Region of Gastronomy’ in 2018? Hardly surprising, because enjoying life comes high on the list of priorities here. In addition, with its countless leading museums, Brabant is also an ideal destination for lovers of culture.
You see it wherever you go in Brabant: highly visible manifestations of art, design and culture. For example, (centuries-old) art in Het Noordbrabants Museum, contemporary design from the hand of Anish Kapoor in Museum De Pont, or raw inspiration at Strijp-S - the vibe in Brabant is one of constant creativity.
What would art (in Brabant) be without Van Gogh? Vincent van Gogh and Brabant are inextricably linked. The little boy from Zundert grew up to become a world-famous artist who left his mark both on the world and on Brabant.
You can enjoy special experiences and meet others throughout Brabant. Carnival is a fantastic party every year! Even so, Brabant offers much more besides. For example, the Dutch Design Week (DDW) gives its visitors a unique insight into design in the Netherlands, and above all design in Brabant. GLOW literally shines an artistic spotlight on Eindhoven each year.
Woo Hah, the Hiphop festival, emphasises the innovative urban character of the Tilburg music scene and both Jazz in Breda and Jazz in Duketown are nationally and internationally important jazz events we can be proud of. And we shouldn’t forget other big names like Tiësto, Hardwell and, last but not least, Guus Meeuwis. They are all from Brabant!
