The 17th Nijmegen Samba Festival will take place on September 11th 2021. Just as last year, this years event will only be one day and the outdoor festival unfortunately won't take place.
Workshops We have a great choice of workshops, thaught by renowned teachers from all over Europe. The workshop program starts at 10.30AM, doors wil be open at 9.30AM. The last worshops ends at 18PM. All workshops have a limited amount of participants. We try to update our webshop so you can't buy a ticket for a fully booked workshop. If we are a wee bit slow and you manage to buy a ticket for a workshop that isn't available anymore, we'll contact you.
Evening program All participants from the workshops get free access to the roda de samba in our samba café. For Cariocas, the inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro, roda de samba means much more than just a meeting of sambistas. Rather, it is an expression of the attitude to life that characterizes the everyday life of many Cariocas. Musicians of all generations, samba lovers and friends meet here in a relaxed atmosphere and devote themselves to samba with cool drinks until late at night. Chris Quade Couto, Maxim Zettel, Nego Dó and Tam Silva will revive this piece of Rio de Janeiro as Roda de Samba do Alemão. Normally in Cologne (Germany), but now in Nijmegen.
Tickets This year there will be two types of ticket: the passe partout (€60 each) and the evening ticket (€10 each). Unfortunately we can't sell single workshop tickets. The total amount of tickets is limited to 70, so don't wait to long to buy yours! Also each workshop has a limit. If you want to buy 10 or more passe partout tickets for your band or group, please contact Wouter so he can arrange a discount code for you.
Restrictions and measures regarding COVID-19 Of course we stick to the measures taken by the Dutch government that will apply in September. We have made a special page at this website for COVID-19, please check this page regularly.
Hope to see all of you in Nijmegen at September 11th!
