Sniester is The Hague’s music festival celebrating whatever rocks, shakes, rattles and rolls.

The next edition will take place on Friday 1 & Saturday 2 October 2021.

We are fully committed to creating a festival as a festival should be: sweaty, sticky, and live. If that means we have to wait a little longer, we wait a little longer.

Your ticket will of course move with you. And if you’re as concert-starved as we are, you can already look forward to what’s to come. Despite the bizarre timeline. The aim is to see as many acts from the 2020 ghost line-up in action on October 1 & 2, 2021.

If you want to stay updated about any ins & outs, go ahead and follow Sniester at Instagram and Facebook.

Take care!

About Sniester

Every year thousands of music aficionados, Dutch and from abroad, find their way to Sniester festival, attracted by the good vibes and energetic, international line-up. Sniester Festival is a beloved city music event that marks the start of the summer festival season for The Hague. For 2 days, the heart of the city is buzzing with sonic fireworks on several stages in The Hagues Popdistrict. Participating locations are among others Paard, de Zwarte Ruiter, Bleyenberg and Het Magazijn.



At Sniester, you can expect the unexpected – genre is unimportant, quality, originality and authentic energy rule supreme. From the outset on Day 1, Sniesters goal and intent was to be a stage for ‘one of a kind’ live acts. Sniester celebrates the unique, the compelling and the brave: artists with an elusive energy that announces to their audience that something special will happen at each show. This may be a popular artist or a new band, it might be a tear-jerking rendition of beautiful acoustic melodies on guitar, a hip-hop duo that builds a state of ecstasy, or a death metal band with two destructive drummers. Plan to be surprised.



Sniester Sunday is the realm to Sniester Junior: the free festival day for children, where they can participate in shenanigans that would never be permitted on any other day of the year. Stagediving, playing electric guitar on full volume, having your hair dyed and even getting your first (fake) piercing or tattoo – anything goes on Sniester Junior. Parents can crash on the terrace (nursing a potential hangover) while the kids take center stage.
