Doors open:

European World of Bluegrass Festival

May 25 - 26 - 27, 2017 Voorthuizen, The Netherlands
"Maybe world peace
can start with a banjo intro."
- Liz Meyer

The 20th EWOB from May 25 - 27 is approaching and the schedule is now available .

You will find many new and old names as previous winners also have been invited to join this special edition.
EWOB 2017 will be special for two reasons since this will also be the last EWOB to be held in Voorthuizen.

EWOB started out as a dream many years ago to create a platform for bluegrass acts and bring the European bluegrass scene together a few days each year.
It gives us great pleasure that we are able to organise the festival for the 20th time in Voorthuizen.
However, due to the fact that city council of Voorthuizen has different plans for the EWOB location 't Trefpunt' it will no longer be possible to organise the festival here in the future.
A new location will have to be found, including people to carry the torch.
Please give this some thought and email us or approach us during EWOB if you have something to offer to continue the tradition! We hope to see you in May!

At EWOB you will truly see bluegrass music in Europe’s brightest colors!
