November in The Hague. Darkness, wind  and rain. An excellent time for soul searching and to feed your head with new ideas, stories and tunes.

Crossing Border is dedicated to invite some of the most compelling contemporary and alternative authors and musicians from all over the world, who share a passion for spoken word, lyrics and language. With one-off special performances where music and literature clash and collaborate on stage.

This year marks the 25th edition of the festival.
