Nijmegen Samba Festival

The 18th edition of the Nijmegen Samba Festival will be at September 3rd and 4th 2022.

Saturday September 3rd will be Workshop Saturday, where samba players can take workshops from great teachers from all over Europe. Also there will be an evening show with live music and an opportunity to dance and party. As we organise Workshop Saturday for the 9th time now, we know that this isn't only a day of learning, playing and listening music bit also a day of meeting old friends and making new ones. Imagine, being in a building full of samba enthousiasts!

Of course we stick to the local Covid measures. We now have experience in organizing pandemic editions of Workshop Saturday in 2020 and 2021. Our Covid measures will be published on the Covid page of this website.

The program will be announced soon and ticket sales will start approximaely March/April.

Sunday September 4th will be Play Out Loud Sunday, where percussion groups show their music to each other and the audience. Groups play at four beautiful locations in the city of Nijmegen, all near the festival venue.
Play Out Loud Sunday has been cancelled for two years now due to Covid regulations. We keep trying, but we can only do this when regulations allow us to do so, enough groups can come to Nijmegen and we get a permit of the city board. Our Covid measures will be published on the Covid page of this website.

Groups can register their interest of playing at Play Out Loud Sunday in Februari/March.


Hope to see all of you in Nijmegen At September 3rd & 4th!
