The Chronicles

Centrale Bibliotheek

The Chronicles is our writers and translators in-residence program. For five days they are exclusively dedicated to reporting on the festival in a daily blog which the translators will translate into Dutch and/or English (or another European language) straight away. Their role is to observe, experience and share the festival in their own language, their characteristic style; literally in their own words. Previous Chronicles have been sharp, bizarre and hilariously funny. To be honest, we never know what we’re going to get. The Chronicles is a like hidden gem in the festival programme. Just look out for the young authors reading excerpts of their works live on stage in between the songs and interviews and follow the Chronicles real-time online at
