Delft is a city where I have lived for almost half of my life. I think it has great size, location, architecture and general gezelligheid (thats a Dutch word that doesn't translate well but is close enough to coziness). It's also the city where I lived when I started dancing! My brothers will be organizing a blues dance festival there called Crash! festival and it is based on a little bit of a different concept than your usual dance event.
The thing that I enjoy most about this festival is what sets it apart from all other dance events I've been to. It is held during a big blues music festival in Delft with more than 70 bands planned this year playing live in amazing little cafe's. You can find information about the music festival here. What they do is they go to live bands in cafes (all the bands have free entrance as the festival is sponsored by the beer brand De Konink)
The festival is organized with a lot of passion by a my brothers and their friends and you can really feel that during the event. Of course it also helps that Delft is one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands and has over 400 internationally protected monumental buildings. With Vermeer and van Gogh coming from delft there is really no reason not to go :)
It will be happening the 17th to the 20th of February 2017! If you went last year leave a comment below with your favorite moment!
