Line-up #incu16 complete!

Hoorah! We are so [insert expletive here] happy to announce the last additions to the festival programme. We pride ourselves on being a diverse festival, and with the addition of different theater acts, free gigs from our Zero programme and expositions at the Iconostase 180, added to an already extensive film and game programme, we continue to build the most diverse festival possible!


Iconostase 180

During Incubate festival, performances by renowned and truly awesome international superstar DJ’s Sleeparchive, Mosca, Mono-PolyHealing Force Project and Tapes will take place INSIDE a giant sculpture called Iconostase 180.

'Iconostase’ is a project to create flexible exhibition rooms by Yona Friedman. It is made with connected rings, forming a structure that can have any size or shape. Incubate and CAST, Tilburgs centre for architecture and urban planning, will host a panel discussion about Yona Friedman's work and vision in relation to the phenomenon of ‘city makers’. 

You can find the full line-up page here.


Theater S.H.I.T and art

Our theater programme is all about S.H.I.T. or 'Spass Haben Im Theater'. Seven different acts will perform during the four days of the festival. Topics like nature, beauty and digital technology will be covered through dance, music, images and art.

We are very proud to announce a collaboration with Bert Scholten and Jens Standke. Figurehead of figurative pop music in the Netherlands, Bert Scholten, will deliver an intimate performance by only singing on request in his exposition, ‘Niks was minder waar’. Visitors can choose a song from Scholten’s repertoire by spinning the wheel. Jens Standke collects materials, like dust particles, onto duct tape and translates these into sounds.

Martijn Hendriks has been placing a growing number of sculptures at public locations in Tilburg: parks and forest areas but also fountains supermarket freezers. During Incubate his sculpture ‘Spoon’ will be placed in a rental Volvo parked in a parking garage at Pieter Vreedeplein, in the city centre of Tilburg.

Incubate Zero is a free music programme in the afternoon, held in two of our favorite record shops and very beautiful restaurant. The afternoon gigs of these great Dutch bands are the perfect way to discover your next favorite local band and future headliner on festivals of your choice.
