Geestdrift Festival (11:45 - 23:15)
The Geestdrift Festival is a unique, substantive, progressive, artsy and intimate indoor festival with a programme filled with beauty, engagement and meaning. The festival differs from any other festival in The Netherlands by touching upon topics like (former) faith traditions, personal beliefs and meaning making and philosophy while combining these with music, art and theatre.
Geestdrift is a friendly environment for the radical theologian. In the past the festival has hosted amongst others John D. Caputo, Kester Brewin and Jeff Robbins. This year Peter Rollins and poet Pádraig Ó Tuama will take the stage at the Geestdrift Festival, together with Mpho Tutu and many others.
