HORST is a two-day celebration of art and music in a setting like no other. The festival champions with a vanguard of talented artists and offers a well-selected worldwide music collage and in situ visual arts.
Nestled away in the green Hageland hills you’ll find Horst, a 15th century moated castle. An inspiring space for site-specific art and the perfect festive backdrop.
Besides its stone keep, music towers over the water and green woodlands. HORST offers a genre-spanning repertoire, a line-up covering versatile ground, a program embodying as much enthusiasm as wealth, flair and talent. Continuing with a two-stage offer, HORST strives to excel in quality, not quantity.
