Xnoizz Flevo Festival (Pays-Bas/18-25 ans):
The Flevo Festival is an open air Christian music festival held each August in The Netherlands. The festival was first organized as the Kamperland Festival in 1978 by the Dutch arm of Youth for Christ and became a private foundation in 2002.
The festival attracts approximately 10,000 people each year. It highlights all musical styles, but especially rock, and is considered by some to be the most important European Christian festival.
The Xnoizz Flevo Festival is organized yearly by Youth for Christ in cooperation with the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (JOP) and the Evangelical broadcasting company (EO). At this moment, preparations for the next annual event are proceeding as planned.
The Xnoizz Flevo Festival is a four (4) day, Christian event with a total of about 10,000 in attendance. The majority of people who come are between 15 and 25 years of age. Most of the people camp for the 4-day event. A broad selection of music, workshops, theater, cabaret, lectures, etc. is offered. More than 200 programs and 90 concerts from five different platforms are offered. About 13,000 people attend the closing open-air service on Sunday morning. The Xnoizz Flevo Festival will be held from the 16th through the 19th of August 2012 in Bussloo near Apeldoorn in the Netherlands.
Each year a special theme is chosen for a common thread that runs through the entire program of the festival. The vision and mission of the festival is as follows: The Xnoizz Flevo festival, in as much as possible, is meant to help the youth in the Netherlands get to know the heart of the christian faith and give form to, develop and strengthen their character and become relevant for their society. The Xnoizz festival offers through music, programs and meetings a safe place in which the youth can develop themselves in an unrestrained environment, not by giving them a particular standpoint, but exposing them to various opinions and differing standpoints.
Xnoizz Flevo Festival is…
simply relaxing in the grass or enthusiastically enjoying a concert in front of the main stage or…eating good food with friends in the sun or…a quiet moment in the village church or…laughing at a cabaret performance or… getting involved in a discussion with a politician or speaker. There are workshops in various activities such as break dancing, djembé or graffiti. Those who are more into sports can join soccer- or volleybal games and much more. You can also take a dive in the lake. The program is scattered all over the festival grounds, there are several big and small tents and platforms. The Xnoizz Flevo Festival is an indescribable experience for all
