This year all visitors and participants will receive this lovely festivalbutton which was designed by Thirsa Berckmans to visualize the worldwide spreading of our festivalmusic. The button was selected to be the best of 22 creations after we had launched the button-contest in February. The high number of creations, deposited at the festival-secretariate, proves that especially youngsters are very creative at realizing new ideas. Thirsa can't be but proud that her very own idea is worn by so many people for a button is "cool", isn't it.
Our festival is still young and renovating, even after 60 years. All other designs will be displayed in the Neerpelt shopwindows, thus giving them an extra musical touch.
