April 29 – May 4

6 days of improvised music all over Amsterdam. Over 50 top improvisers in a line-up that is both natural and risk-taking, matching artist and venues in unexpected ways. Hear the Frank Gratkowski Quartet in Splendor and experience noise and spoken word trio Thurston Moore – Andy Moor – Anne-James Chaton in the Bimhuis. Cycle around Amsterdam Noord for this year’s Amsterdam Real Book Fiets Tour and discover what makes musicians tick during Eric Boeren Meets…at Zaal 100. Doek Festival #12, improvisation art at its best, it’s live and it’s now.
