CaDansa Balfolk Festival

CaDansa, a wonderful festival full of crazy bands, funny games, beautiful connections, good coffee, local beers, and a whole lot of dancing!

Unfortunately, CaDansa 2021 is cancelled. We hope to see you all in Steenwijk(NL) for CaDansa 2022 to make some wonderful new memories. We miss you all 🧡

Latest news:

Oh no, not again! That’s what we’ve been thinking these past few months. Unfortunately, the decision we all feared has been made: same as in 2020, there will be no CaDansa this year. There is still too much uncertainty for us to be able to make CaDansa happen in October the way you know it: a wonderful balfolk festival full of fantastic bands, fun games, joyful encounters, hugs and dances.

The risks and uncertainties surrounding possible (ever changing) rules for social-distancing, mask-wearing and visitor-numbers, here in the Netherlands as well as abroad, are currently too big for CaDansa. Continuing on this road towards October, with perhaps a cancellation later on, could mean that CaDansa would no longer be possible at all in the future. That is the last thing we want and that is why we had to make this decision with great reluctance and sadness. We would’ve loved to join you on the dancefloor in De Meenthe. Yet we do not give up, we keep courage and we continue to organize. Of course we hope with all our hearts that we will be back at full strength in 2022 and then set up a smashing ninth edition, with the most beautiful music and finest dances, like you’ve come to expect from CaDansa. We hope to see you all at the next edition and we’ll be happy to dance a dance (or two, or five, or twenty or a hundred) with you. Until we dance again! Yet we do not give up, we keep courage and we continue to organize.

Program 2021

You already know Trio Baladins would have come to perform this year. Who the other artists & the workshop teachers would have been, we will keep a secret from you for a while. We might try and ask them for a next edition 😉.

Donate and support

Although CaDansa will not take place this year, we’ve been working around the clock to try to make it happen. Plenty of things have already been set in motion. This is of course not free of charge. For example, we still have the costs of our website, storage and insurance. That is why we now have the opportunity to donate again, if you want to support us and make the next CaDansa possible. When we have covered this year’s costs, we will close the donation again. After all, CaDansa remains a non-profit festival and it wouldn’t feel right for us to make a profit. Check our donation page for more information.

Until the next CaDansa!

Of course we assume that we will be back at full strength in 2022 and then set up a smashing ninth edition, with the most beautiful music and finest dances, like you’ve come to expect from CaDansa. We hope to see you all at the next edition and we’ll be happy to dance a dance (or two, or five, or twenty or a hundred) with you. Until we dance again!
