Personal story

Take a seat and share your personal story with the musician. Let yourself be surprised by the power of music, fully inspired by your unique experience. Together with the musician, you will bring the musical voice of Amsterdam to life. Music creates a sense of belonging and connection.

The festival is completely free and everyone is welcome. From doctor to homeless, from baby to widower and from lifelong friendship to first date: every person is welcome and every story matters to me. This can be about anything from dreams and memories to missing loved ones, hoping for healing, wanting to go home and not having a home, and mental health.
