Just like last year the 62nd European Music Festival for Young People (May 1 to 5) will start off with a riveting Kick-off on Thursday, May 1 at 7 p.m. in the sports-hall of the Provincial Domain Dommelhof. All EMJ participants will gather there in a relaxed and chilling atmosphere to present a sparkling musical show. Taking part in the event, is a choir consisting of 200 primary school children from Neerpelt supported by the children’s choir Kiliana to sing the Festivalsong. Free access to everyone.
One hour later it is time to move to the town market square where at 5 p.m. “A Taste of Neerpelt” was launched. After last year’s successful edition, EMJ organizes this all-in event in co-operation with local traders and associations, cultural partners and the town-council. Come and enjoy the music, the fireworks and the tasteful culinary highlights.
