International line-up with a mix of music styles

The festival has an excellent, well-curated line-up featuring international musicians, artists and bands. From the festival's name, the program involves a crossing of music genres, mixing avant-garde pop with Indie rock, and progressive styles with classical music. In addition, its nomadic nature allows the same artists to criss-cross the country and play in Holland's most special and most prestigious venues.

Well-known artists

In previous editions the Cross-linx Festival has featured full set and collaboration performances by several well-known artists such as The National, Efterklang, Nico Muhly and Yan Tierssen. These artists played special sets and performed with classical orchestras such as the Radio Symphonic Orchestra, the Asko|Schönberg Ensemble and the Holland Baroque Society.

Upcoming acts – Music Mining

A very innovative and open-minded spirit is evident in the festival. In addition to the main program, the festival also features a lot of new music by up and coming artists in a special program called Music Mining. During Music Mining, small groups can go on guided tours to mini concerts in unusual venues such as changing rooms, boiler rooms, cellars and backstage areas.

Cross-linx is an exciting chance to zip across different cities and experience a fresh take on pop and progressive music. Something sparkling and new is waiting for you at Cross-linx Festival.
