Festival Policies 2023

EWOB Festival Policies

The organization committee of European World of Bluegrass Voorthuizen would like to see everyone enjoying the festival and the beautiful music we all love.  Although we realize that we cannot make everybody happy, we sure will try.

You can help us with that!

We would appreciate it if you would like to help us with the following:

Jam Sessions

No bluegrass festival is complete without them. We trust you bring your instrument and to find others to play with. Designated areas do not seem to work, so you may pick and sing anywhere you please, as long as it does not interfere with other festival activities or Dutch safety rules. People in the festival hall want to enjoy the performance on stage, so look out if you play near the festival hall doors. EWOB officials may have to keep an eye on that.

Festival Hall

We want everyone to have a good view of the bands that are playing and each band appreciates a filled Festival Hall. Therefore all seats are available for everyone. For safety reasons 2 seats in front and 2 seats in back are reserved for our Hall Monitors. All other seats are free to use. We do not have a reservation system.

Because of Dutch Fire and Safety-law you have to take all your belongings with you when you leave the Hall. Unattended items will be removed by the Hall Monitors.

Photos and Films

Taking pictures to remember a great festival is of course allowed, but please consider the audience when you are taking them. Please do not enter the stage or the stairs, because of our equipment.

Because of Dutch Musicians Rights-law you have to have the permission of the band to film their performance. Our MC will inform the audience if the band they introduce does not give permission to film their performance.

On behalf of the organization committee thanks again for coming to our festival and above all ENJOY !!
