Since 2011, Rewire has been a meeting place for the discovery of envelope-pushing musicians, acclaimed artists and emerging new talents. In April 2022, Rewire is taking over the city centre and its surroundings for its 11th edition, presenting forward-thinking and genre-bending music across a diverse range of venues including concert halls, theatres, churches, night clubs, galleries, and public space. The latest addition to the festival’s locations is Amare, the new cultural hotspot for performing arts in The Hague.
For its 2022 edition, Rewire is proud to present a multi-day focus programme around world-renowned composer, singer and interdisciplinary artist Meredith Monk. Another highlight is 100 Cymbals, an acoustic composition by electronic music pioneer Ryoji Ikeda performed by Les Percussions de Strasbourg. Rewire will also premiere newly commissioned pieces, including works by Helm & Nate Boyce, Slikback x Weirdcore, and Myxomy (James Ginzburg & Ziúr). Furthermore, the programme features exclusive concerts by celebrated artists like Grouper, Jenny Hval, Mira Calix, and Circuit des Yeux, all presenting new albums.
