The Hague International Singer-Songwriter Festival (THISSFest)


The Hague International Singer-Songwriter Festival (THISSFest) is an independent, seven-day celebration of the art and craft of the singer-songwriter held in The Hague, Music City.

The inaugural edition of THISSFest took place from June 27th to the 30th 2013.

THISSFest aims to become a leading international Singer-Songwriter Festival attracting thousands of music lovers to The Hague, thus enhancing the music and cultural tourism activities during the traditional music festival week, including GBOB (Global Battle of the Bands) and culminating with ParkPop, one of Europe’s oldest and most widely attended free outdoor music festivals.

The Hague International Singer-Songwriter Festival is organized by the Secret Singer-Songwriter Society (S4), a Dutch Nonprofit Foundation whose twofold mission is to foster the work of independent singer-songwriters while raising money for and awareness of a multitude of humanitarian causes around the world.

The second edition of THISSFest will be held from the 23rd to the 29th of June 2014. Closing day performances will take place at the THISSFest Pavilion at ParkPop.

Finally, a new feature to THISSFest being introduced with the 2014 edition will be an annual country SPOTLIGHT, highlighting the music and culture of one country. We’re pleased to announce that Spain will be THISSFest 2014′s SPOTLIGHT country. Watch for more details on the THISSFest website coming soon.
