The festival typically runs for several weeks in each city, and features a vibrant and festive atmosphere with colourful tents and outdoor stages. Visitors can enjoy a range of performances, from small-scale intimate theater shows to large-scale productions. The program includes both local and international artists, and there is something for everyone, regardless of age or artistic preference.

The festival has become a beloved tradition in the Netherlands, attracting both locals and tourists who appreciate the diverse and accessible cultural experiences it offers.
