At Incubate we try to offer kicks and contemplation right next to each other. We like to learn new things while having fun; about music and art and all the wonderful things that come with it.
That’s why we’ve set up four days filled with great artists, speakers, critics and journalists. They’re here to talk, to show, to learn to hear from you. All of this in a splendid café with comfortable chairs and great coffee. Attendance is free of charge.
Come to Incubate Café and join the conversation!
