For the past two years, Groningen foundation Art of Clash organized several daring events in sometimes unusual locations whereby it invoked clashes between electronic music and visual art. On 6 and 7 April CLASH takes over the Oosterstraat (VERA, OOST and Grand Theatre) with electronic music, art installations, performances, lectures and workshops during CLASH XXL Festival. The weird yet perfect combination of a rave, an art museum and a festival you never knew you needed.
6 April: 19:30 (doors) / 20:15 (start) – 07:00 (end)
7 April: 12:00 (doors) / 12:30 (start) – 23:00 (end)
You need to exchange your ticket for a wristband, this can ONLY be done at Grand Theatre. Our accreditation desk opens at 14:00 on Saturday 6 April, so if you don’t want to stand in line in the evening, you can get your wristband earlier in the day. We can scan tickets from your mobile device, so there is no need to print your ticket. Tip: set the brightness of your screen at it’s highest.
