Culture & Events
For concerts by huge mega-stars you might have to take a train to Amsterdam, but for cool festivals and concerts at cosy local venues, Den Bosch has it covered. The city's historical legacy as a prominent regional powerhouse has left it well endowned when it comes to cultural sites and events - a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed, as it was recently named as (one of the five) Dutch cities who has been nominated for the EU's Capital of Culture for 2018.  The Dutch government has recently raised the taxes levied on tickets for cultural outings from 6 to 19 percent. Now, many cultural institutions fear a steep decline in visitor numbers. Also the biggest theatre in town, Theater aan de Parade, has reduced lots of productions for the coming season cause big cuts from subsidized funds are in effect now. Festival goers should check out Festival Boulevard, Jazz in Duketown and Bevrijdingsfestival.
