Festival for Music and Literature – DOUBLE FACE

The DOUBLE FACE festival will take place on 28 and 29 September on the Kulturgut Haus Nottbeck, the Museum of Westphalian Literature. The festival for music and literature starts on both days at 6:30 pm. You can look forward to a selection of artists who will be equally celebrated by the music press and the feuilleton. The artists use several forms of expression at the same time for their performances. As the title of the festival suggests, the artists have two faces. On the one hand they make music in various constellations or alone, on the other they are writers. The unusually varied programme of the two-day festival promises a unique experience that you shouldn’t miss! Day tickets or 2-day tickets can be purchased and a bus transfer from Oelde station will be arranged. Further information can be found here
